About the Authors

Kali’s Tithe is a collaborative project by two seasoned authors of science-fiction and horror literature.

Kat O’Connor

Kat O'ConnorKat O’Connor is a Midwest native, but born with an Irish passion that was a bit too big for a small town. After studying in the New York metro area and, briefly, in London, she settled in Chicago more or less by accident. There she pursues a career in multi-disciplinary arts. She has shown her fine art portrait photography in galleries around Chicago and New Jersey. A collaborative performer who is equal to the challenge of co-creating a story, she has been featured in a number of independent films, including Hatboxes (Fernwork Productions), For the Trees (FukFashion Inc.), and The Dog (Featurepoint Cinema). She is a company member of Terra Mysterium Performance Collective, and has performed with them both musically and theatrically at the Chicago Fringe Festival, a variety of storefront theatres and community festivals, and in a recently released single and music video. In her spare time she practices aerial circus arts and reads tarot. Kat is a natural storyteller, with words or, just as often, without. Her personal mission is to tell the story, and thus change the world, one heart at a time. She lives next to a cemetery with her partner and her black cat PĂșca, named after an Irish fae.
