Kate writes novels, short stories, plays, and devised performance works. Her first novel Blasted received the Sunburst Award’s honourable mention, and her third novel This Insubstantial Pageant was tipped by the Toronto Star as a top SF pick: “Exotic, funny and very sexy . . .” 2018-19 saw the publication of her first young adult fantasy, the Antilia duology, and another young adult novel Urchin comes out this year with Running the Goat Books and Broadsides. Her short fiction has been published in World Fantasy Award and Aurora Award-winning collections, won honourable mention for the Sunburst Award, and has been shortlisted for the CBC Literary Awards.
Due to the vagaries of the publishing world, you can procure Kate’s novels Blasted, Antilia: Sword and Song, Antilia: Seer and Sacrifice, and This Insubstantial Pageant by contacting Kate directly (or just troll the interwebs for second-hand copies). Or check out your local library! If they don’t have it, ask for it! You can find Wrecked Upon This Shore at Breakwater Books:
