About the Author

More About the Author

Kat Yares has been writing fiction her entire adult life. She is an author, screenwriter, indie movie maker and amateur photographer. Her short fiction has appeared in numerous print publications and online. She was first accepted into the Horror Writers Association in 2001 and remains a member today.

Her fiction is primarily in the horror/thriller genres. Unlike many, she writes horror not to gross out or startle her readers, but to make them think. Most of her stories are mind games and deal with mans (or woman's) inhumanity to man (or woman).

Her novella, Vengeance Is Mine, while horror, still strikes a cord for many readers as they can see correlations between the story and what is happening in today's political climate.

Her two novels, Beneath the Tor and The XIII, are both fantasy and thriller and as several readers have written to her, are bound to send her to Hades after she passes.
Visit her blog (www.katyares.com) to find out more about her and the various Internet retail outlets where her books can be found.

I purchased this little gem of a book about the first week of December 2009. Since that time, I have read all thirteen stories at least twice. I found myself thinking about the words Kat Yares has put down to paper. The overall theme and the stories themselves come back into my brain, which is not a bad thing. Whenever I can pick up a book, read those words, and it leaves a strong impression; I feel it is money and time extremely well spent. I inquired more on the works of Kat Yares and found she is soon to be releasing a Radio Style Play on Audio CD. You can bet I will be first in line to purchase that as well.

This collection of short stories was a great read from cover to cover. The twists in her stories kept me guessing, always a surprise to the last sentence.

This entertaining collection of thirteen short stories goes by in a breeze. The stories are short and to the point, but more importantly they are also macabre with truly ironic endings. They remind me of what a 21st Century Twilight Zone would be.

Each story begins with a little teaser-preamble and ends with an ironic twist that you often don't see coming.

By nature, story collections can be uneven. However, all here are good and fun and creepy and scary.

These are the kind of stories that take you for a switchback of a ride, with twists and turns aplenty and where the stories begin by heading in one direction, then whip you around in another so fast and so hard your head spins.

My favorite story, Murder by Modem, opens the collection. And it's a strong opening. And the kind of story that makes you want to keep reading, which is just what I did.

There are some truly creepy family relationships in this collection. Suddenly Sober finds a mother wondering why she opens her eyes to see her son holding a pillow over her face. We can certainly figure out why from the story. But she never seems to get it....

And The Changlings is a truly eerie story about a truly disturbing family. But the most chilling part of the story is the realization that sometimes the demons in our lives are (or could be) our own spoiled children, who are so selfish and self-absorbed they're easy marks for....what? You'll have to read the story to find out.

Kat's Tales is a short and sweet collection of short and sweet stories...if your 'sweet' is the macabre world of Kat Yares.

Each story is delectably different from the others, like taking a cream filled chocolate from a box and waiting for the flavors to melt on your tongue. One of my favorites is, The Ridge. Like bon-bons, you keep going back for one more.
