Britt Kemp


the Useless Critic and other things. I've been writing since before I could read and that's really true. I'm inspired by Anais Nin and F. Scott Fitzgerald the most, with Jack Kerouac and Flannery O'Connor and sometimes Sylvia Plath (YES) coming into play. Short stories have been my recent forte but I'm also working on a novel. I like dark humor, but I like things with heart, too.
