K.L. Gore resides in upstate New York with her two children. She is a part-time writing instructor and facilitates a monthly writer’s workshop at her local Barnes and Noble bookstore. Her stage play Something Blue (not to be confused with the novel of the same title) was performed on the theater stage, and she’s written and performed puppet shows for local schools and libraries. She loves to read just about anything. She is now focusing her efforts on YA contemporary novels.


Recent Work
