Cathryn Grant’s short fiction has appeared in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine and Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine. Her short story, “I Was Young Once” received an honorable mention from Joyce Carol Oates in the 2007 Zoetrope All-story Short Fiction contest.
In her first Suburban Noir novel, THE DEMISE OF THE SOCCER MOMS, a provocative single mother permanently alters the lives of four Silicon Valley soccer moms. It’s available now as an eBook at Amazon.com and Smashwords. The print version will be available in late January. Her second novel, BURIED BY DEBT, will be released in November 2011.
Cathryn’s flash fiction has been published at Every Day Fiction and at her website under Flash Fiction for the cocktail hour. One reader commented that she “makes the mundane menacing”.
All her life, Cathryn has irritated family, friends, and co-workers by incessantly asking, Why? In real crime, the why is often left unanswered. Her fiction explores the social and psychological forces that could drive an ordinary person to commit a crime, especially homicide.
When she’s not writing, Cathryn works in high tech, reads, and plays very high-handicap golf. In the winter she huddles by the fire with a glass of scotch, a bowl of popcorn, a novel, her husband, and two cats.
