Katherine Prairie

Editor, Author


Since 1985, technical writing and editing have been key aspects of my career in geology and information technology. My work on a wide variety of projects, for both private and public sector clients, has provided a solid editing foundation.

I turned my attention to fiction in 2005 and published my first Alex Graham thriller eleven years later. It’s been a journey that’s taught me the art of storytelling—and the importance of a good editor.
