Kasia Manolas lives in Chicago where she spends her time reading, writing, and obsessing about how to tell more stories in better ways. Her first novel, MT, received an honorable distinction in the 2018 CWA First Chapter Contest.

A graduate of University of Wisconsin-Madison, she’s lived in Illinois, Wisconsin, and California. Kasia is a contributing editor for the Windy City Review, a manuscript reviewer at Curbside Publishing, and her writing is published across the web, including in BooksByWomen.org and Literally, Darling. 

Kasia is hard at work writing a second novel, while submitting her first novel, MT, to literary agents who represent upmarket thrillers.
