Katherine May’s fiction and memoirs include The Electricity of Every Living ThingBurning Out, and No-Stress Meditation. She was also the editor of The Best, Most Awful Job, an anthology of essays about motherhood. Her latest book is Wintering, a paean to how we muddle through life’s inevitable fallow seasons and embrace the opportunities these moments offer. Melding lessons from literature, the natural world, and personal experience, it's referred to by Elizabeth Gilbert as “every bit as beautiful and healing as the season itself.” The former Programme Director for Creative Writing at Canterbury Christ Church University, May has published work in such varied periodicals as CosmopolitanGood Housekeeping, and the Times of London.
