Author Kathrin Hutson Returns with Sleepwater Static, the Novel in the Blue Helix Sci-Fi series

International Bestselling Author Kathrin Hutson has been writing Dark Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and LGBTQ Speculative Fiction since 2000. With her wildly messed-up heroes, excruciating circumstances, impossible decisions, and Happily Never Afters, she’s a firm believer in piling on the intense action, showing a little character skin, and never skimping on violent means to bloody ends. 
In addition to writing her own dark and enchanting fiction, Kathrin spends the other half of her time as a fiction ghostwriter of almost every genre, as Fiction Co-Editor for Burlington’s Mud Season Review, as Director of TopShelf Interviews for TopShelf Magazine, and is an active member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and the Horror Writers Association. 
Kathrin lives in Vermont with her husband, their young daughter, and their two dogs, Sadie and Brucewillis. 

Thank you again for Fire, Pain, & Ruin being a finalist and congratulations to all the winners!
