Meet the Author: Kathleen Glasgow

Kathleen GlasgowKathleen Glasgow has lived in Pennsylvania, Arizona, New Mexico, and Minnesota. She has four chickens, a cat, and several koi. They should not get along, but they do.

Kathleen’s debut, GIRL IN PIECES (Random House/Delacorte, Aug. 30, 2016), is a Young Adult Contemporary novel. 17-year-old Charlie Davis is a girl on the edge of losing herself: to cutting, to homelessness, to grief. Pitched as Girl, Interrupted for a new generation, this is a novel about finding your people, finding your art, and fighting your way back, one hard minute at a time.

Fun facts:

  • Favorite book growing up: THE OUTSIDERS by SE Hinton; THE CATCHER IN THE RYE by JD Salinger, and A WRINKLE IN TIME Madeline L’Engle.
  • Childhood aspiration: Well, duh: writer.
  • Favorite time of day/place to write: The morning, in the downstairs spare room (aka, THE LEGO ROOM, formerly “her office”), after several cups of coffee, looking out her window at the birds dipping into the koi pond, hearing the chickens nestling in the coop.
  • Book currently reading: THE BOOK OF UNKNOWN AMERICANS, by Cristina Henriquez.
  • One of her favorite things to do: Searching for 50s prom dresses online.
  • Surprising personal fact: Her predilection for pepperoni.
  • Greatest thing about being a 2016 debut author: Like, really, literally, knowing a life dream came true: becoming a published novelist. And joining a superb crowd of debut authors.
