For “The Seven O’Clock Man”

“Blending character and action in a way that makes the reader’s pulse pound is tough in a short story, but Kate absolutely nails it; I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire thing.”
Black Gate

For “For Sale by Owner”

“The mark of an extraordinary tale is one that makes all of life’s distractions disappear and loses the reader in the telling. This is one such story. This is why we read stories. This is why fiction exists, to enlighten the human condition, and to share it with others.”
Diabolical Plots

For “Traveller, Take Me”

“A poignant tale of loss and self-reflection.”
