K.A. “Kai” Doore writes adult fantasy – mostly second world, mostly novels – with a touch of horror and a ton of adventure. She grew up in Florida, but has since lived in lush Washington, arid Arizona, and cherry-infused Michigan. While recovering from climate whiplash, she’s raised chickens, learned entirely too much about property assessment, photographed cacti, and developed online trainings. She lives with her microbiologist wife, two cats, and a small human.

Her debut, The Perfect Assassin – the first in what she keeps insisting is her queer assassins save the day trilogy – comes out in 2019 from Tor.
