Kathleen Latham is a native Californian who has spent the last twenty-four years in the Boston area cursing how long it takes to defrost a frozen windshield.

She graduated summa cum laude from Occidental College and received a Ed.M. in developmental psychology from Harvard University. She had a brief career in the mental health field before deciding to stay home to raise her four children.

Her writing adventures began in 2007 when her first short story, 3:57 (Night Vision), was the Grand Prize Winner of the Writer’s Digest Short Short Story Competition. Since then, she has been a finalist for Shenandoah’s Bevel Summers Prize, a Press 53 Open Award, and the Southeast Review’s World’s Best Short Short Story Competition. Her work has appeared in such journals as Eclectica Magazine, Tipton Poetry Journal, Flash Fiction Magazine, The London Reader, Clockwise Cat, Picaroon Poetry, Lascaux 250, and Alehouse.

She is currently at work on a novel.
