About Kathy

Hi, I'm Kay Patterson, a published author and multi award-winning screenwriter. My fiction has appeared in numerous print and online magazines and anthologies in the US, UK, and Australia. I was the creator and senior editor of AlienSkin Magazine, a popular online science fiction, fantasy & horror site which helped launch the writing careers of many genre writers during the magazine's 8 year run. My stories blend reality with elements of science fiction, fantasy or horror; and my experience as an editor, and lover of Flash and Micro fiction, shines in my ability to write tight, visually descriptive action scenes and sequences. My foray into screenwriting has gained many finalist rankings and award-winning status in numerous contests. I'm currently working on two more TV Pilots and another feature thriller.
