Rendered in an honest voice, Kathy Handley's style is very detailed and ultra-personal, including tiny little things that might not seem to make a difference but that add to the understanding of the characters and their struggles, in essence tangential but not distracting, instead adding a whole other layer of depth and insight into the human psyche.
Kathy Handley, a Grub Street member, writes fiction of all lengths. Her short fiction has appeared in many literary magazines. It has also placed in contests, such as Press 53's 2010 Flash Fiction Contest. Most recently Ms. Handley won Word Hustler's Page-to-Screen Contest (2011) judged by Sara Gruen.
