I knew Kate a few ways: through my show where she was a guest three times. The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, where she sat on my panel. And a writing project for which she generously wrote an essay on spec (not yet unpublished). She wrote one of my favorite short stories: “Tall Tales from the Mekong Delta.” It’s in the fantastic collection, Squandering the Blue, as well as widely anthologized and googleable.
