This coming September 14, 2021, her debut thriller Dark Things I Adore will be published by Sourcebooks Landmark. Advance praise for Dark Things I Adore includes remarks by Sarah Langan, author of Good Neighbors, who says: "A smart, nuanced

exploration of victims and villains, inspiration and theft, and the intersection of

these things in every artist. Pay attention to Katie Lattari. She's the real deal."

husband Kevin, and their cat, Alex.
