Short biography
In the beginning Katharine Eliska Kimbriel was nominated for the Campbell Award for Best New SF/Fantasy Writer. Kimbriel wrote literate, character-driven SF and Fantasy. Then she became really ill and tried to die. Do you know that if you win the throw with Death, you become a wizard?

Katharine is a founding member of Book View Café. The SF has been re-released as e-books (FIRES OF NUALA, HIDDEN FIRES, and FIRE SANCTUARY.) She is revising a mystery with ghosts, and is writing the third Alfreda fantasy novel. Also on the horizon is a contemporary fantasy dealing with curses, dragons, very large cats and the principal that “you are what you eat.” Find her on the Internet on Live Journal (Alfreda89) Facebook (Katharine Eliska Kimbriel) and Twitter (Cat Kimbriel)
