I write humorous fantasies and run the website Speculations: Burford's Fantasy Odditorium (www.kathyburford.com), featuring excerpts from my books, reviews and features, and a fantasy forum where you can express yourself. Quirky and humorous fiction appeals to me, especially fantasies and mysteries. I studied Russian and comparative literature and also read a lot of history (reflected in some of the characters in my novel ELSEWHEN). My day job is working as an editor in Austin, Texas.

I've played a lot of old-fashioned computer role-playing games (exploring some fanciful complications in my fantasy THE WIZARD WARP). My current work in progress is HEXED IN TEXAS, in which the Russian witch Baba Yaga and the granddaughter of Marie Laveau compete for a rare item released by a magic leak in San Antonio.
