About Kate Policani

Hello, My name is Kate Policani, and I’m a compulsive fiction writer. My first story was called “Super Cat”. It wasn’t good, it was horribly spelled, and the idea was mostly plagiarized. Every journal I own begins with a few days of my life and the rest is a hastily-scrawled record of whatever story came out. Ideas come from my dreams. I think about my stories in bed as I drift off to sleep. I often wake at three am with a writing revelation. I might be dreaming up romance stories in the line at the DMV or texting a poignant line for my main character to my email address from the bathroom at the mall. I live in Seattle, Washington with my wonderful husband and three energetic children. Most of my writing is done to the sound of my children’s voices, and is interrupted every few sentences. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

“The Lustre” by Kate Policani.


I won this book through a promotion that Kate was running. If you purchase it you will not be disappointed. The author had me hooked by page four. Her ability to show and not tell will be one
reason I will be passing this book for others to read like I normally do. Just this time I will be keeping the book. The examples in this book one can draw from is priceless.


The book is about a young woman by the name of Angelina who at a young age knows she is different. She has this gift of absorbing pain from others while giving them pleasure in return. She is special among her peers. Each chapter dives into a different POV from the men who come across her path.


And by the way, she is not human.


This is a wonderful book. It is fast paced and can be read relatively quickly.
