While attending UA, K interned with the 13th Moon Feminist Literary Magazine, bridging her interests in social movements and art. Topics of K’s writing include the environment, animal welfare, gender limitations, racial disparities, and the trauma of war.

Blue Honor (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: “An epic journey of love's struggle to survive when a country struggled to unite.” Blue Honor follows four tightly twined families during the course of the American Civil War. Sometimes yielding their own skirmishes is the only way to see friends and loved ones through the conflict. The only certainty they have is that nothing will be the same when the battles end. Emily Conrad is the bookish daughter of a wealthy Vermont dairy family. Her indulgent father educated her well, and cultivated ambitions thought improper by her urbane mother. It is decided by her that Emily must settle down with longtime friend, and town philanderer, Evan Howell. The outbreak of war offers Emily an escape, but a stranger soon arrives, threatening her plans more than societal conventions ever could. Devoted to the young woman who healed her wounds, Henrietta becomes part of the Conrad family, all the while hoping to see her husband and son again. As an escaped slave, she’s lucky to have found peace there, but Evan Howell's return, and the man he brings with him, imperil her new found freedoms. This is a change that could see her locked back in irons, if not executed for what she has done. Evan isn’t as bad as his reputation implies. He knows his chum Emily will be the best doctor Vermont has ever seen, and he knows he’s not the man to marry her and see that through. With a little manipulation, he convinces his commander, Lieutenant Joseph Maynard, to take leave with him and see the beauty of the North. He just doesn’t let on it’s not hillsides and streams he’s setting the man up for. Joseph has both power and privilege as the son of a Baltimore lawyer, but status can't guarantee him the things he wants in life. His commission in the army is likely to end in death, a sacrifice he was ready to make to aid the end of slavery—that was until he saw Miss Emily Conrad. Torn between duty and desire, Joseph struggles to maintain his waning convictions. War weary, they all march on to duty…
OP-DEC: Operation Deceit (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: "A shadowy past becomes a sinister future." It's 1933 and the height of Boston's social season. Claire Healey overhears a terrible argument between her industrial-tycoon father and her socialite mother. Claire's father sends her mother away, declaring she is hysterical with fatigue. Displaced by this disastrous outcome, Claire is brought to New York by her spirited aunt, to be raised beyond the reach of the damaging turn of events. Nine years later, Claire returns to her childhood home to face her past once more. The world has long since exploded in war. A mysterious stranger named Carsten Reiniger has infiltrated the scene, placing his commanding presence among the old familiar faces of Boston's elite. Intrigued by the newcomer, Claire struggles to piece together his identity and finds a dangerous connection to her troubling past. When Claire's prying comes to light, she and her aunt are whisked away in the middle of the night to ensure their silence. Can Carsten Reiniger be trusted or is he implacably loyal to duty alone?
