Hello, I'm Kathleen.

I'm a philosopher at the University of Sussex, UK. I'm an avid consumer of fiction in nearly all its forms, and I think about fiction and its relation to the imagination professionally in my research. I've written a book on the subject and quite a lot of articles

This blog is for my emerging and immediate - sometimes half-formed - thoughts about fiction, imagination, and related matters. With it, I hope to work some things out for myself as I go along, and start a few conversations with others who are interested.
