Celebrity werewolf and late-night radio host Kitty Norville prefers to be heard and not seen, but when she's invited to testify at a Senate hearing on behalf of the country's supernaturals, her face gets plastered all over national TV. Before long Kitty's inherited a brand-new set of friends and enemies, including the vampire mistress of the city, an uber-hot Brazilian were-jaguar, and a Bible-thumping senator who plans to expose Kitty as the monster he truly believes her to be. Kitty quickly learns that in this city of dirty politicians and backstabbing pundits, everyone's itching for a fight - and she's about to be caught in the middle.
What the papers say:
"Amongst the recent explosion of lightweight vampire (and similar) novels, Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Goes to Washington stands out. This is a fun novel, but it deals superbly with very real issues of difference, fear and prejudice. Well worth a read." -- David V Barrett FORTEAN TIMES "A fun read and worth the price of admission." -- Heather Worthy STARBURST
Carrie Vaughn was born in California, but grew up all over the country, a bona fide Air Force Brat. She currently live in Colorado with her miniature American Eskimo dog, Lily. She has a Masters degree in English Lit, loves to travel, and is known to occasionally pick up a rapier.
