My next big thing … My Irish novel!

My new novel, The View from Gleninagh North, is finished and I am now querying agents and submitting passages in contests. Want to visit Gleninagh North, on the south shore of Galway Bay, and spend a few minutes in Cassidy’s pub?

What people said about K.D.’s writing

 When I published a short story “Vous Etes Ici” as part of a contest by Northshire Books of Manchester, Vt., one reviewer said:  “… The story that captivated me was Vous Etes Ici by K.D. Norris.  “What a charmer!”, I remember noting in my post-reading remarks.  The dialog and characters are crisp and true- the story of  two parents meeting their daughter and her lover for dinner in a Montreal restaurant glowed with love and warmth without being cloying or syrupy, also effectively personalizing the current and former politics of the “gay marriage battle”.

Arts & Entertainment: Past, Present and Future

I conducted a great interview with the very British actor Julian Sands about his one-man stage production of the works of the very British playwright Harold Pinter. MLive’s On The Town only ran a short story (alas) but here is the complete  Julian Sands Q&A.
