About the Author

Born on Staten Island, New York, to a French-Irish mother and an Iroquois father, Ki Longfellow grew up in Hawaii and Marin County, California, but ended up living in France and England for many years.

Her first book, "China Blues," now republished, was the subject of a bidding war. "China Blues," and her second novel, "Chasing Women," introduced Longfellow to Hollywood... a long hard, but ultimately fascinating, trip.

Ki's second book about personal divinity is "Flow Down Like Silver," a novel about the numinous and gifted Hypatia of Alexandria, a tragically ignored woman of towering intellect who searched through that intellect for what Mary Magdalene knew in her heart.

"Houdini Heart," Longfellow’s first book of psychological horror is a stunning departure from her usual work. "Houdini Heart" has been favorably compared to the works of Shirley Jackson and H.P. Lovecraft.
