“Ripped from the Headlines…” Ken Storer at the March 13th Meeting of Sisters in Crime Los Angeles
Kate Thornton enjoyed traveling the world as a child with her family. Opting for even more world travel, this time with an edge to it, she served 22 years in the U.S. Army, retiring right after 9/11. With a rich background of exotic locales and an insatiable appetite for reading in all genres, she began writing short stories. Her first short, “Just Like In the Movies,” was published in David Firks’ legendary Blue Murder Mystery Magazine and nominated for a Derringer award. With over a hundred stories in print, she enjoys teaching short story workshops in Southern California.
Mystery writer Sue Ann Jaffarian praises the work: “Whether you are a fan of science fiction, crime fiction or just good fiction, you will enjoy this diverse collection that smacks of the same juicy eeriness as found in classic Twilight Zone episodes.”
