About Kara

Kara Ferguson was born and raised in Memphis, TN by extremely liberal parents. She frequently thanks them for deciding not to name her Starshine. Kara lives with her husband and their two spoiled cats and spends her free time watching zombie movies, and pretending to be a writer and editor. She will read anything she can get her hands on. In December of 2008 Kara obtained a degree in Liberal Studies from the University of Memphis with concentrations in English and Art History. Since then, she's started her own literary magazine, Midnight Screaming, and her husband now questions her sanity. Her dream is to write and publish her magazine full time, but unfortunately someone has to pay off all those student loans. Her writing career began with angsty teenage poetry, followed by several unsuccessful attempts at National Novel Writing Month and various unfinished short stories. Kara finally has several finished works (only one of which is about zombies) which she hopes will eventually impress someone enough to publish them. Until then, she'll keep on writing and publishing other writers in her magazine.
