Get to know K.A...
Birthday? July 25, 1972
 
When did you start writing? I planned this enormous dystopian trilogy and started writing it in the fall of 2012. I wrote two books rather quickly, but they were, well, rather terrible. Somehow recognizing that I needed help, I found a critique group and switched gears to short stories in 2013. 
 
When and what and where did you first get published? My first publication was a flash piece for Evil Girlfriend Media in Feb 2015.
 
What themes do you like to write about? My favorite theme is how technology affects human relationships--with each other, with ourselves. There's this awesome (maybe good, maybe bad) potential for technology to change us in ways we can't even imagine. So I'm trying!
 
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? I try to write characters like those in The Most Dangerous Game and The Cold Equations--characters who think they're in control until they find out they're most certainly not. The emotion just kicks you in the gut.
