“I’ve always written,” author Kate Horsley said. She started in the fourth grade, when she wrote the class Christmas poem. Her career took another step when she published her first novel, “Crazy Women,” in 1992.
Horsley explained while earning her Ph.D. at the University of New Mexico in American studies, she was fascinated with the stories in history and wanted to write about them but in a non-academic way.
After publishing “Crazy Women,” she said, “I was hooked on the research and hooked on story writing. It’s wonderful.”
Horsley is eager to share her excitement towards literature and writing as well as her life as a writer during the upcoming Authors Speak presentation at 7 p.m. Thursday at Mesa Public Library.
She has had lengthy experience in this field.
Horsley has written six works of historical fiction, has started writing plays and is currently working on a book about the mathematician Pythagoras’ daughter.
“I love history,” Horsley said. “I think that it’s just fascinating to look at, especially women in history. Their real lives ee just what real, ordinary women have been doing.”
