Every year, authors from Fiction Writing, a Facebook Group hosted by Brian Paone and Laurie Gardiner, produce a short-story anthology in the ‘Of Words’ series. This year, from Scout Media comes A Haunting of Words—the third volume in an ongoing short story anthology series featuring authors from all over the world. This is Part 1 of my review of the anthology.
A native of the southeast United States, Kari Holloway is a shutterbug, spending her days chasing her two daughters while enjoying the outdoors. She never strayed far from her family’s four-generational farmhouse, attending Georgia Southwestern State University and receiving her bachelor’s degree.
Her debut series, Laughing P, is a delightful mix of real world problems infused with the iconic southern culture that many witness first hand when they visit. Not content with a single genre, she writes what comes to mind and worries about slapping a label on it later. A prolific self-published author, she has now made a meteoric transition to Paranormal Fantasy. I was over the moon when Kari agreed to be my first Q&A. Who is the woman behind the ‘glamour’ of such vivid fiction?
