Welcome! I’m Kate–a writer of fantasy, magical realism, science fiction, and horror. My poetry and fiction has appeared in Podcastle, Fireside Fiction, Arsenika, and Illumen, among other places. My non-fiction essays and book reviews have appeared at Superstition Review and FantasyLiterature.com where I once curated a column, “The Expanded Universe.”


I also teach English Literature as an adjunct instructor at the University of Mississippi. My Ph.D. from Florida State University is in early British literature, with a special emphasis on drama and the history of the book. My other research interests include the staging of women’s bodies; fairy tales and folklore; and science-fiction, fantasy, magical realism, and horror.
