Kay Rae ChomicOn Tuesday, August 12 we welcome Kay Rae Chomic, author of A Tight Grip for a reading and signing. A competitive golfer at a young age, much of the golf action in Kays novel was taken from her experiences playing tournaments at the local, state, college, and national level.

She holds a BA in marketing from Michigan State University, and a MBA in management from Golden Gate University. Kay has dedicated herself to her writing career in recent years, earning certificates in fiction and non-fiction writing from the University of Washington, participating in a writing group, readings, classes, and attending events at the Hugo House. When not writing, or working on the business of writing, Kay loves to swim, travel, and promote literacy by working as a tutor.
