Author Biography

The Home for Wayward Clocks (2011) is the first published novel by Wisconsin author Kathie Giorgio. The novel centers on the life of James Elgin who, after being laid off from his job, opens a clock museum. His tale is one of survival, healing, and, ultimately, triumph over economic, emotional, and physical obstacles. Giorgio's writing is noted for the intense and honest tone she uses to create a world of complexity. She is also known for her short story writing and has had stories published in such journals as Fiction International, Dos Passos Review, Harpur Palate, Ars Medica, and Potomac Review.
