Kelly A. Harmon used to be a newspaper reporter.
She found reporting to be by turns exciting (covering murder trials) and excruciatingly boring (covering itty-bitty town council meetings). Most other stories managed to fall in between those extremes on a sliding scale of interesting.
Eventually, she moved away from full-time reporting and editing owing to boredom of the routine. Stories were still interesting, but the rote mechanics of the job became anathema.
Nonetheless, she still writes non-fiction...because she can't seem to leave it alone.
When not crazed with the need to freelance, she writes fantasy and dark fantasy with the occasional science fiction piece. Her story, "Lies," short-listed for the Aeon Award. Her award-winning novella, "Blood Soup" is recently re-issued by Pole to Pole Publishing and available in Kindle format.
Her other short fiction can be found in several anthologies, including: Deep Cuts, Hellbore and Rue, Black Dragon, White Dragon, Triangulation: Dark Glass and Bad @ss Fairies 3: In all Their Glory.
