I’m Kathryn Hore. I’m a writer of speculative, dark and crime fiction, and also of business non-fiction, which is not nearly the same thing, I promise.

You check out books and publications and stuff containing words by me over here: Writing 

I also happen to be a libraries-archives-records-knowledge-data-information governance geek, because along the road to becoming a writer I also had to pay the bills and I fell in love with idiosyncrasies of managing information in all its forms. Well, someone has to.

I spend a lot of time pondering how different literary genres intersect and interact, because I can be really fun like that. I also spend a lot of time thinking about information flows, metadata, classification, discoverability, and how information services from records to archives to libraries intersect, because didn’t I tell you I could be fun?

Yeah, I’m a geek and proudly so.

I take photos of weddings and spiders, if rarely at the same time, and wrangle a couple of small children who have taken over my life with plastic toys powered by fading batteries. You don’t know the meaning of fear until you have been shocked awake at 3am by a child’s toy blasting demonic-sounding music without warning as the batteries die a loud and agonising death. Trust me on this.

Online you can usually find me under the handle @kahmelb, at least on those sites where I’m happy to be publicly identified and which wouldn’t make my mother blush. Much.
