Prize-winning author Kate Gallison lives with her husband in the quirky town of Lambertville, New Jersey. She has been at various times a store clerk, a computer programmer, a technical writer, and a museum docent. Her published writings include three private eye novels (the Nick Magaracz series), five traditional mysteries featuring Episcopal minister Lavinia Grey, and Monkeystorm, a YA suspense novel.
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. She is presently at work on FIREBOMB, a spy thriller that takes place in New York City during the early days of World War I.
