Katia Noyes has worked as a roofer, math tutor, arts journalist, content developer, go-go dancer, and hospital storyteller. She is now an editor for private clients needing help with novels and memoirs.
She writes autobiographical prose poetry these days and is working with screenwriter Kip Pearson to adapt her first novel for film. She is also having fun co-hosting a podcast, Generation of 27, exploring the poetry of Federico García Lorca.
Her first novel, Crashing America (Alyson), was a finalist for three awards (the Lambda Literary, Triangle, and the Northern California Book Award), was an American Booksellers BookSense Notable book and the American Library Association chose it as a recommended book for young adults. The United Kingdom's Rainbow Network and Amazon both chose it as one of the ten best LGBT books of the year. Alexander Street Press chose it for its landmark collection addressing LGBT thought and culture.
An excerpt from her second novel, A Partial History of My Delusions, was published by Criminal Class Press, and you can find her essays in various collections, such as For Keeps: Women Tell The Truth About Their Bodies (Seal Press).
She is a practitioner of meditation, devoted to her friends and sweetheart, and is at her happiest dancing in the streets.
