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 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 doing the rough planning for my new Nano novel. Right now I'm vacillating between a story about a Mennonite-type mother forced, while she recuperates from surgery, to move in with her poly-switchy-kinky Dyke daughter (thanks, Mer!), or a story about an accountant who's more than a little OCD about germs who falls in love with zookeeper.
What I'm Doing
Unpacking from our recent move into the city. Learning the new routine. Working with two new schools. Trying to be content with the homemaker role, at least until I get it down. Oh! And practicing the guitar.
