Profile Information

Morton, Mississippi
About Me:
Tonya “Katt” Dunsmore was born in Morton, Mississippi, and spent most of her youth moving back and forth between Central Florida and Mississippi before returning to Mississippi at the age of 15. She graduated from Forest High School in Forest, Mississippi. Katt holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Criminal Justice from American Intercontinental University, where she graduated summa cum laude. Katt works as a Communications Officer for a North Carolina law enforcement agency and holds accreditation through the North Carolina Justice Academy and the National Academy of Emergency Medical Dispatchers. Katt is also a writer and an illustrator. She writes crime, suspense, horror, mystery, and the occasional prose and humor. Her stories and essays have appeared in Crime and Suspense Magazine, Flashing in the Gutters, Associated Content, Bewildering Stories, The Curveball Conspiracy, Flashshot, MicroHorror, Silver Moon Magazine, and Mouth Full of Bullets. She has three stories in the anthology “The EX-Factor: Justified Endings to Bad EXes,” published by Koboca Publishing. She is an illustrator for Aisling Press. Katt has several projects currently in production, including two novels, several short stories, and illustrations for a series of children’s books with author Frank Zafiro. She recently completed illustrations for a privately published children’s book, “Gracie’s Wilderness Adventure” by Steve Wohl. Katt has many hobbies. They include doll-making, sewing, quilting, painting, and designing and making Native American art and jewelry. Katt is married to her beloved husband, Dinny, and they have three children, Letitia, John, and Thomas. They make their home in northern South Carolina with their feline companion, Oghma, and their Giant Breed Rottweiler – German Shepherd mix, Briscoe.
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
I have an entire list of favorite writers: Thomas Harris, AJ Rand, Bo Savino, Michy Anderson, Frank Zafiro, BJ Bourg, Karen Slaughter, Kay Hooper, Stephen King, Anne Rice, Dean Koontz, just to name a few....and when I'm not reading others' work, I'm writing my own. I won't say I'm a great writer and I won't say I'm a hack...I'll leave that up to my readers to decide. Don't ask me, because I'm my own worst critic. It never fails...I'll write something and think it's pure shit, and everybody else loves it. One of my editors told me that the stories she feels are my very best remind her of Twilight Zone episodes...or the Friday the Thirteenth series that was on for awhile. I take that as pretty damned high praise. Of course, she did later bitch that "every time you write something, Katt, somebody dies!!!" "Not true," I replied, "I've written a few stories where nobody died." "True," she countered, "but they were already dead." I had to give her that point. Oh well, as we say in the South, "they needed killin'."
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Movies: Silence of the Lambs (I was really disappointed in Red Dragon and Hannibal - neither did Thomas Harris' books justice), Practical Magick, The Godfather I,II, and III, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Bone Collector, Green Card, Kiss the Girls, Miss Congeniality, all of the Harry Potter movies, all of the Pirates movies, and a very long, very ecclectic list of others...

TV: All the Law & Orders, all the CSIs, ER, Dog the Bounty Hunter (BRING BACK DOG, DAMN IT!!!!), Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, Saving Grace, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Changing Rooms, Flip this House, and a few others.

The things you see when you're out and about and up to no good...

I was out running errands today (doing some shopping...getting the monster puppy new food and water bowls, collar and leash...he's outgrowing EVERYTHING at an astonishing rate!!!). I figured I would get them done today since I was off duty and the monkeys (the two of our three children who are still at home) were at school.

As I was leaving my favorite local mass retailer, I noticed a couple in the parking lot having a good old fashioned, knock down, drag out, screaming, yelling,…

Hey Jeff...The EX-Factor is about more than husbands and wives dishing out a few just desserts, other family members and even ex-friends got into it. There are some fantastic stories in there by some very gifted people. I feel very lucky to have been able to work with the wonderful people I did on this project - both the writers and Koboca Publishing. I'm looking forward to working on the sequel: "Oh Enemy Mine."

Hi Katt...The premise of EX Factor sounds intriguing, ex wives and ex husbands dishing out just desserts. As Lord Byron said, "Sweet is revenge--especially to women." Sounds like fun. Thanks for inviting me to be a friend on your page.
