About Kay McSpadden
I have been teaching almost 40 years at high poverty schools in the rural South, and I still love going to work every day--usually!
"Notes from a Classroom" is a collection of essays about my students. "A Child's Book of Virtues" is a multicultural collection of stories and myths for intermediate readers.
I also write literary fiction when I'm not grading papers and writing a regular op-ed for The Charlotte Observer. "Why Women Moan In Bed" won the Norman Mailer Fiction Prize in 2012. Other short stories have been featured in regional journals, such as Luck, The Charlotte Writers Anthology, Main Street Rag, and We Are Not This.
For sci-fi and fantasy fans, "Orphans in the Black: A Space Opera" features 19 terrific writers (and my story "The Alien" is part of this e-book collection).
For fantasy fans, "Once Upon a Quest" is a terrific retelling of 15 fairy tales. Check out my story "Cat White" based on the French fairy tale "The White Cat."
For readers looking for a sci-fi fantasy mash-up, check our "Once Upon a Star." My story, "Candy House," is a sci-fi retelling of "Hansel and Gretel."
