Alice K. Boatwright

Alice K. Boatwright is the award-winning author of COLLATERAL DAMAGE (Standing Stone Books, 2012). In three interlinked novellas, COLLATERAL DAMAGE traces the impact of the Vietnam War on those who fought, those who resisted, and the families and friends caught in between. It was finalist for the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction and won the 2013 bronze medal for literary fiction from Independent Publisher Book Awards.


Alice is also the author of dozens of short stories published in journals such as the Mississippi review, Stone Canoe, and Storyglossia and the popular Ellie Kent mysteries. The first in this series, UNDER AN ENGLISH HEAVEN, won the 2016 Mystery and Mayhem Grand Prize for best mystery; and the sequel, WHAT CHILD IS THIS?, was published in 2017.

Alice studied writing as an undergraduate at Syracuse University and received an MFA in writing fiction from Columbia University. She has taught writing at the University of New Hampshire, UC Berkeley Extension, and the American School of Paris. After a decade based in England and France, she moved to Seattle in 2014.
