I’m a writer of features and fiction based in Boulder, Colorado.
Features: With more than a decade of experience in newspapers and magazines, I’ve written for a variety of publications up and down the Front Range, including the Denver Post, the Daily Camera (Boulder), Boulder Magazine and The Gazette (Colorado Springs). My specialties include restaurants — I was restaurant critic at The Gazette, 2011-2012 — food, health, fitness and travel.
Fiction: My passion, however, has always been for fiction and I’ve seen success in that arena, as well. With a writing style best described as Margaret Atwood meets Amy Schumer, my short fiction was nominated for a 2015 Pushcart Prize (“Desire Designed,” BROAD Magazine), and my first novel, Transference, published August 2017. Colorado Book Review called Transference “a punchy, bright read” and said, “Kate Jonuska has a keen, witty, unique voice that will likely only get more incisive and vivid with time.”
