Audrey Kalman writes literary fiction with a dark edge about what goes awry when human connection is missing from our lives. She is the author of two novels—What Remains Unsaid (2017) and Dance of Souls (2011)—and a book of short stories, Tiny Shoes Dancing (2018), which was shortlisted for the 2019 International Rubery Book Award. Her short fiction has appeared in a number of print and online publications.
She served as editor of Fault Zone, the anthology of California writers produced by the SF Peninsula Branch of the California Writers Club, and is currently the branch president. During spring/summer 2020, she was selected for a literary residency with the Shuffle Collective.
She lives in northern California and is at work on another novel.
She also works at a day job (or, more often, a night job) as a birth doula with Peninsula Birth Companions.
