Originally from Virginia, I recently completed a Ph.D. in creative writing and literature from the University of Houston, where I worked with such writers as Chitra Divakaruni, Alex Parsons, Edward Albee, and Dan Stern. A recepient of the UH Barthelme fellowship in fiction writing, I am revising my dissertation, which is a literary horror novel tentatively titled A PERFECT ROOM FOR SLEEPING.

A former writer-in-residence for Writers in the Schools, I now teach writing, research and literature courses at the University of Houston-Clear Lake. I also freelance for business and government publications, coach ABD students through the process of completing their dissertations, and serve as teacher and mentor to students in a Texas state prison. I live with my husband and three cats in an old house in a small town.

    "Kathryn is one of the most inspiring professors I ever had the pleasure to take a course with. I was enrolled in her creative writing class at UH-Clear Lake and her love of writing and storytelling spilled through to all her students, including me. She was encouraging, a true mentor, sincere, and deeply committed to student success. I began working on my own novel after taking a class with her and I will always be grateful for the creativity she inspired. She is a dedicated and most professional role model for all students."
