about the author
Katie Lattari's debut thriller DARK THINGS I ADORE was published by Sourcebooks Landmark in September 2021. The novel immediately gained attention from the New York Times Book Review, Apple Books, Library Journal, and others for its lush, atmospheric writing and sharply drawn revenge plot. Barnes & Noble chose DARK THINGS I ADORE as its July 2022 national mystery & thriller pick.
Katie's short fiction has been published in such places as NOO Journal, The Bend, Stolen Island, Cabildo Quarterly, Pennsylvania English, The Writing Disorder, and more. Her short story "No Protections, Only Powers" was a finalist in the Neoverse Short Story Writing Competition and later anthologized in Threads: A Neoverse Anthology. Her first-ever novel, AMERICAN VAUDEVILLE, a small press literary work, was published by Mammoth Books in 2016.
In her spare time, Katie enjoys reading thrillers, watching (or listening) to baseball, making homemade pizza, and spending time with her husband Kevin and their cat Alex.
Katie is currently at work on her next novel, a standalone thriller set on the coast of Maine.
