How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I have a short story collection, a women’s fiction novel, and now this novella, so I have a few genres at the same time.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Keep writing and reading. Study grammar. Hire a great editor and book cover designer.
Kim Cano is the author of For Animal Lovers, a short story collection for kids ages 9 to 12. It also appeals to adult readers who are young at heart. 10% of the sale price is donated to the ASPCA® to help homeless pets.
A Widow Redefined is Kim’s debut novel. It’s a story of a young woman’s journey through grief and the transformational power of friendship.
Kim’s latest is Dogschwitz. A novella set in the future that explores the terrible time in American history when millions of unwanted dogs and cats were euthanized each year.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’m an animal activist and thought it would be nice to write a novella that brought current issues to light.
