K.L.’s short stories appear in the anthologies, DEADLY SOUTHERN CHARM (“Burn”) and MURDER BY THE GLASS (“EverUs”).

She is also the author of THE CENTER: FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION, the 70-year history of the JCC, a beloved Richmond, VA, institution.

When she’s not writing, she loves to vacation at the beach, read, entertain friends, catch up on everything she ignored, and always—walk the dogs.
