I hate writing bios almost more than I hate writing thank you notes (they are about as stale), so I will try to make this interesting. I was born on a blustery spring day in [excised], a good year for Republicans and a bad year for zinfandels. I penned my first literary masterpiece in a pink Trapper Keeper soon after: a short story about a wild horse named Babbling Brook. Babbling Brook found herself in a pickle when the field she used for grazing froze over in a blizzard and then, still frozen, burned. While my early appreciation for plot and conflict was encouraging, it was also clear that I lacked a basic understanding of the laws of nature.

After graduating from The University of the South (Sewanee) with an English degree, I moved to Was

Dearest Cornmuffins,
The culinary is about to meet the literary. If you are in or near the Nashville, Tennessee, area, you will have not one but TWO chances to come see me do my best impression of the Swedish Chef! I am delighted to be hosting two book signings/cooking classes at Salud! at Whole Foods and at Super Suppers Franklin. Details below:

“I found myself suddenly jealous of the time when things were simple, when days centered on creek walks and tetherball, and your biggest worry was whether you'd have riding or sailing. There were no boys, there were no secrets or rumors, and there were no regrets. Not even fear of regret. There was just a best friend and endless hours to fill with Pixy Stix and laughing so hard you couldn't breathe.”
Kathryn Williams, The Lost Summer

“everyone feels like an impposter sometimes. That's life. This probably isn't the last time you will find yourself playing a role you wouldn't hve picked for youtself, but it doesn't change who you are. It's just the part you've been cast for the time being.”
Kathryn Williams, The Debutante

“Prologue I died one summer, or I almost did. Part of me did. I don’t say that to be dramatic, only because it’s true. It took me a couple years of sifting through memories and reading the journals I wrote while I was laid up in bed after it happened to understand what I lost that summer—what we all lost. Also what we gained.”
Kathryn Williams, The Lost Summer
