Welcome! You've reached the internet home of Katrina Stonoff, writer of women's fiction with elements of dark humor. Look around a bit. Comment on the blog or use the Contact form below to drop me an e-mail. I'd love to hear from you!
I'm in the process of updating my website. It'll have a whole new look -- shiny and pretty. And a little sassy too because that's just who I am. So come back soon to see the new 'do!
I've added an entirely new section on Domestic Abuse
. It's a subject important to me because of my personal history, and it's a primary theme in East of Jesus.
I've posted an updated version of East of Jesus
, the novel I expect to sell first. If you're interested in seeing how a chapter changes during revision, you can see the old, archived version here
If you write fiction, check out Tools for Writers, an online version of a hand-out (with links!) from a two-hour workshop I gave on Novel Plotting and Structure.
What I'm Working on
I'm querying agents about East of Jesus and finishing the first draft of Some People Know Things, about a mentally disabled young girl who helps a young man with Down syndrome hide from the police after he mistakenly believes he has committed a crime.
What I'm Doing
Working through The Artist's Way
with a couple of local writers. Carpooling children to school and fencing. Learning finger style on the guitar.
Next up is a brand new book by one of my very favorite authors (probably my VERY favorite): Golden State
by Michelle Richmond
. In fact, Mr. Green is at serious risk of being set aside momentarily, but I'm sure I'll be finished with Golden State
within twenty-four hours. Thirty-six tops!
