Kim Headlee lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, Great Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins—the latter having been occupied as recently as the midtwentieth century—seem to be sticking around for a while yet. She has been an award-winning published novelist since 1999 (Dawnflight first edition, Sonnet Books, Simon & Schuster), and has been studying the Arthurian legends for nigh on half a century. Her most recent fiction release, King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court by Mark Twain as channeled by Kim Iverson Headlee, has been hailed as “solidly entertaining” by Publishers Weekly.
