Genre: Fiction

Kathryn Trueblood's latest novel, The Baby Lottery, is published by The Permanent Press of New York. Her first book, The Sperm Donor's Daughter, received a Special Mention for the Pushcart Prize 2000. Trueblood has co-edited two anthologies of multicultural literature, The Before Columbus Foundation Fiction Anthology: Selections from the American Book Awards with Ishmael Reed and Shawn Wong (W.W. Norton, 1992); and Homeground, which won the Jurors' Choice Award at Bumbershoot in 1996.

Her qualifications include a B.A. in English from U.C. Berkeley, a certificate from the Radcliffe Publishing Procedures Course, and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Washington. She is an Associate Professor of English at Western Washington University.
