Katharine Eliska Kimbriel reinvents herself every decade or so. It’s not on purpose, mind you – it seems her path involves overturning the apple cart, collecting new information & varieties of apple seed, and moving on. The one constant she has reached for in life is telling stories.
“I’m interested in how people respond to unusual circumstances. Choice interests me. What is the metaphor for power, for choice? In SF it tends to be technology (good, bad and balanced) while in Fantasy the metaphor is magic – who has it, who wants or does not want it, what is done with it, and who/what the person or culture is after the dust has settled. A second metaphor, both grace note and foundation, is the need for and art of healing.
“A trope in fantasy is great power after passing through death. Well, at my crisis point, I didn’t die. That means that I’m a wizard now. Who knows what I may yet accomplish?”
A John W. Campbell Award nominee.
On The Chronicles of Nuala:
“Closer to DUNE on an epic scale than to any of the Darkover or Pern novels.”
– Shiny Book Review
On the tales of Alfreda Sorensson:
“With a clear, distinctive voice, Katharine Kimbriel invents and re-invents magic on America’s frontier, a place hardly explored by writers and long overdue for a visit. (Or should I say a visitation?) Love the book.”
– Jane Yolen, the award-winning author of Briar Rose
