My Irish novel is being shopped around!

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

Now at WKTV community television, here is a February 2016 feature on Chinese dissident artist and activist Ai Weiwei’s 2017 show at Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids.

Just before I left MLive/The Grand Rapids Press in late 2016, I was able to interview Scott Avett of the Avett Brothers. Who would have thought he likes a beer every now and then? And then there was my review of The Avett Brothers in Grand Rapids; music and the dawning of the Age of Trumpism?
