Her books and essays have appeared in a variety of magazines and anthologies. Katherine is a graduate of Vassar College and the University of Houston's Creative Writing Program. She lives in Houston with her husband and two sweet children. Book: A year after getting divorced, Helen Carpenter, thirty-two, lets her annoying, ten years younger brother talk her into signing up for a wilderness survival course. It's supposed to be a chance for her to pull herself together again, but when she discovers that her brother's even-more-annoying best friend is also coming on the trip, she can't imagine how it will be anything other than a disaster. Thus begins the strangest adventure of Helen's well-behaved life: three weeks in the remotest wilderness of a mountain range in Wyoming where she will survive mosquito infestations, a surprise summer blizzard, and a group of sorority girls. Yet, despite everything, the vast wilderness has a way of making Helen's own little life seem bigger, too. And, somehow the people who annoy her the most start teaching her the very things she needs to learn. Like how to stand up for herself. And how being scared can make you brave. And how sometimes you just have to get really, really lost before you can even have a hope of being found.

Today, the YouTube series boasts a viewership nearing ten million. McKenzie was recently named one of "Seventeen" magazine's "Pretty Amazing" finalists. She lives in Portland, Oregon. Book: Shortly after her sixteenth birthday, Sunshine Griffith and her mother Kat move from sunny Austin, Texas, to the rain-drenched town of Ridgemont, Washington. Though Sunshine is adopted, she and her mother have always been close, sharing a special bond filled with laughter and inside jokes. But from the moment they arrive, Sunshine feels her world darken with an eeriness she cannot place. And even if Kat doesn't recognize it, Sunshine knows that something about their new house is just ... creepy. In the days that follow, things only get stranger. Sunshine is followed around the house by an icy breeze, phantom wind slams her bedroom door shut, and eventually, the laughter Sunshine hears on her first night evolves into sobs. She can hardly believe it, but as the spirits haunting her house become more frightening--and it becomes clear that Kat is in danger--Sunshine must accept what she is, pass the test before her, and save her mother from a fate worse than death.

UNFOLD: HOUSTON REVEALED
Brazos Bookstore, Monday, April 13 at 7pm
Brazos Bookstore will host a publication launch party for UNFOLD: HOUSTON REVEALED. UNFOLD is a product of a new Interdisciplinary Arts course at UH, taught last Fall for the first time by Associate Professor of Graphic Design Cheryl Beckett and English/Creative Writing Professor Peter Turchi, made possible by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, and bringing together graduate and undergraduate students in Graphic Design, Creative Writing, and Art.

UNFOLD is an atlas of nine surprising and original maps meant both to reveal parts of Houston and to inspire further exploration. "Triskaidekaphobia" depicts 13 of the buildings in the Medical Center dedicated to science yet succumbing to superstition: none of them have a floor numbered 13. "Signal2Noise" charts the invisible yet highly trafficked wireless networks in four Houston neighborhoods, with names that range from mundane to comic, from vulgar to political. "Hol(e)y City" combines a visual representation of potholes surrounding Lakewood Church with quotations from scripture, sermons, and city documents speaking as if with one voice about flooding, upheaval, and the need for maintenance.

UNFOLD: HOUSTON REVEALED is published in a limited edition of 300. Copies will be available at the launch party, with proceeds benefiting Houston Habitat for Humanity.
