About K. A. Cook

K. A. Cook is a panalterous, aro-ace, genderless, autistic feminist who experiences chronic pain and mental illness. They write creative non-fiction, personal essays and novels about all of the above on the philosophy that if the universe is going to make life interesting, they might as well make interesting art.

They are the author of several short fantasy stories combining ridiculous magic, cats, disability, bacon, mental illness, microscopic gnomes, aromanticism, the undead, verbose eldritch entities and as many transgender autistics as any one story can hold.

Review by: E Scott on July 12, 2018 :
A short story that asks why fairy tales are the way they are, explored though the eyes of an aromantic-asexual protagonist. Cleverly written in the second person, it questions why "normal" has to be the default setting for everyone. Beautiful, thoughtful writing.
