Katrina Stonoff writes women's fiction that is slightly twisted, due to a sardonic sense of humor developed to survive countless hours in a Mommymobile chauffeuring her children (one with Down syndrome).
In a previous, much more interesting life, she published a weekly community newspaper, taught high school, worked on a cattle ranch, photographed a military helicopter crash, went stunt flying in an open cockpit biplane, sang with Diana Ross in a Super Bowl half-time show, and gave birth to three children at home.
She plans to be a published author in her next life, which will start as soon as she sells her hottest manuscript, East of Jesus. The novel is a fast-paced, quirky look at psychological abuse for a female reader who might daydream about wielding a chainsaw on that jerk down the hall.
A recent US ex-pat, Stonoff lives in Stony Plain, Alberta.
