Welcome Writer Aurora Nibley!

September 26th, 2016 • Hannah Fergesen

I am so thrilled to announce that Aurora Nibley has joined the KT Literary family!

Aurora’s book is a magical realistic retelling of the myth of Apollo and Cassandra, set against the backdrop of silent film-era Hollywood.

A little about Aurora: she has always been fascinated with the relationships between the old and the new. Her grandfather raised her and her sisters on Greek and Roman myths, and even older, more obscure tales. As she grew older, she became fascinated with the history of her native Los Angeles—a city that’s still moving forward so fast it almost doesn’t have time to remember how it got where it is. Once she finished growing up, accepted that she wasn’t going to become a movie star, and got serious about writing, it seemed natural to combine the stories of Ancient Greece and Rome with the stories of old Los Angeles, so recent by comparison.

Aurora’s book is so unique and I can’t wait for the world to experience it!
