smirkingKatePrize-winning author Kate Gallison lives with her librarian husband and their cats in the quirky town of Lambertville, New Jersey. She has been at various times a store clerk, a computer programmer, a technical writer, and most recently a museum docent. Her published writings include UNBALANCED ACCOUNTS and two other private eye novels in the Nick Magaracz series, BURY THE BISHOP and four other traditional mysteries featuring Episcopal minister Lavinia Grey, THE ORGANIZER, a fantasy that asks the question: What would happen if someone tried to unionize a software house? and GIRL ON THE RUN, a vaguely dystopian YA suspense novel, and FREDDIE ZORN AND THE DARK INVADERS, a spy story that takes place in New York City during the early days of World War I.

Under the name of Irene Fleming, she wrote two mystery stories set in the world of silent movie production in the early twentieth century, THE EDGE OF RUIN  (winner of the New Jersey Studies Academic Alliance fiction prize for 2011) and THE BRINK OF FAME.

Her latest series depicts a coven of accidental witches fighting right-wing conspiracies in our nation’s capital. THE WITCHES OF WASHINGTON is the first of these stories, available as a Kindle, an e-book, or a paperback. It’s killingly funny.
