My pseudonym is Katherine Addison. Katherine reviews nonfiction. Sarah reviews fiction. Fair warning: I read very little fiction these days.

I was born and raised in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, one of the secret cities of the Manhattan Project.

Let's not even get into the topic of children's versions of Shakespeare. And that goes double for The Tempest, which is surely Shakespeare's most misunderstood play.

“The obligation d'âme meant that his only allegiance was to Felix, making them a separate kingdom of two, with Felix as king and Mildmay as ministers, army, and populace all combined in one. A stormy little kingdom, I thought, with periodic flare-ups of civil war and a magnificently unstable government. And I was glad I wasn’t a citizen of it.”
Sarah Monette, The Mirador

“It is a rose planted in your heart, and as it's thorns tear you, so does it thrive and flower”
Sarah Monette, The Mirador

“I gave up on cussing - I'd run out of words filthy enough - and just started praying.”
