Kim Taylor Blakemore
I am the author of the Amazon bestselling historical thrillers AFTER ALICE FELL and THE COMPANION, both from Lake Union Publishing. Other historical novels include BOWERY GIRL, and the WILLA Award winner for Best YA Fiction, CISSY FUNK. I have taught creative writing workshops in person and virtually since 2010. Classes are experiential, with writing exercises and feedback focused on skills that strengthen prose and story. I've taught a range of writers, from beginning to published, and workshops benefit writers of novels, short stories, memoirs and creative nonfiction. I am a three-time grant recipient from Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) for my manuscripts THE COMPANION and THE GOOD TIME GIRLS, and a winner of a Tucson Festival of Books Award for The Companion.
