Editorial Reviews


This powerful collection explores the many ways in which women can lose and find their voices, and ultimately reminds us that when we raise our voices together, we can, in Rose Maria Woodson's words, "be greater/than gravity." --Gayle Brandeis, author of The Book of Dead Birds

More About the Author

Kate Skylar grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After spending a year in New York City studying at Barnard College, she moved to Los Angeles and lived there ever since. After graduating from University of Southern California with a Bachelor's degree in mathematics, Kate Skylar decided to dedicate her time to her true passion: writing and telling stories.

While writing stories, plays and poetry, she continued to study and get degrees (PhD in Education, MA in English Literature and Writing and MA equivalency in applied mathematics) and put off getting a proper job. In addition to telling stories, Kate Skylar's other passion in life is traveling and experiencing new things. In 2015, she spent a month traveling around Scandinavia and the summer living on a small limestone island in Belize. She also got scuba diving certified, jumped out of an airplane at 30,000 feet and moved to Yucca Valley, Calif., a desert town near Los Angeles with dusty roads, flowering cacti and gigantic Joshua trees.

SEVENTH VEIL is Kate Skylar's first novel.

In addition to SEVENTH VEIL, Kate Skylar is also the author of NO NEED FOR A LADDER, a collection of haiku about Monterey Bay, California, and ISLAND OF DOGS, a collection of poetry about Mexico City. Her haiku have appeared in London Literature Project, Poetry 24, The Asahi Shimbun AJW, the English-language version of Japan's leading daily newspapers, and has been translated into Chinese by NeverEnding Story: English-Chinese Bilingual Haiku.

Kate Skylar's poetry, short stories and essays have appeared in numerous literary journals, magazines and anthologies in the US, UK, Canada and India, including the Worldlitonline, Contemporary Literary Review India, Magnolia Anthology for Socially Engaged Literature Volume II, Thresholds: Home of the International Short Story Forum, New Plains Review, The Nevada Review, Perhaps, Lost in Thought Magazine, the delinquent, and Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine. Her articles have appeared in Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Global Post, Global Post Education and and have been translated into Spanish and Portuguese.

I loved this anthology. We need more thought provoking literature from women. Enjoyed the wide range of short stories and viewpoints.
