Katherin, Kathy, Katie G, KG, Miss Garland, Dr Garland…these are the titles by which I’m known. As a writer, I prefer to go by K E Garland. But on this blog, you can call me Kathy.
Writing helps me to think about my place in the world, past and present. It also helps me process a view of society and what some might deem as mundane. And there’s always a lesson learned or special twist at the end. Either way, it’s life through my lens and I’m happy to share it with others.
Since I’ve delved back into writing, I’ve been featured in a few anthologies: Chicken Soup for the Soul: I’m Speaking Now (2021), Pulp: A Year in PulpMag (2020), and All the Women in My Family Sing (2018), I’ve won first place for an unpublished creative nonfiction short story (The Transition, 2016), and my essay “Tough Love” was curated with the Lungs Project (2020).
Oh yeah…I also have three books: Kwoted, The Unhappy Wife, and Daddy: Reflections of Father-Daughter Relationships. Hope you enjoy!
