Colorado Book Awards

I am thrilled to announce that Desert Chrome is a 2022 Colorado Book Awards finalist in Creative Nonfiction! On June 25, in Denver, Colorado Humanities & Center for the Book will host a ceremony to announce the winner, while I will be on the Main Salmon River at a writing workshop with David James Duncan (!), along with my friend Leanne Summers, so I won’t know the results until we take out a few days later. And, really, I feel as if I’ve already won, as being a finalist for this important award for Colorado writers is already a dream realized.

Susan Tweit’s Bless the Birds: Living with Love in a Time of Dying, a wonderful, heart-wrenching and hopeful book, is also a finalist, and I haven’t yet discovered the other company we’re keeping. Susan and I will both be at Denver’s BookBar (4280 Tennyson St., Denver, CO 80211) on Friday, May 27 at 7 p.m., to read alongside other Creative Nonfiction and General Nonfiction finalists.

To order Desert Chrome, you can go here:, or to your favorite indie bookstore,, or the other guys.

  1. So proud of you Kat! Such a great book! There is so much to it. Of course I really love the parts that talk about Ed and your mom and sisters but the whole book is a work of art! I’ll order a couple of copies for friends who will love it!

    Thanks for keeping me in the loop!
