Kat is the Edgar nominated author of two young adult novels, and most recently collaborated with Stan Lee on his final project, the Audible Original Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light. The title is one of Lee’s final collaborations and most innovative works created and finished in his lifetime, and I’m delighted I got to speak with his co-writer, Kat, about working with Lee on this one-of-a-kind audio storytelling experience. Kat is a gifted writer who understands the complexity of youth culture and owning one’s voice when it comes to storytelling.
Narrated by the inspiring Yara Shahidi, Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light introduces listeners to a mysterious young woman, Nia, whose fate is intertwined with a seemingly ordinary Midwestern teenager, Cameron Ackerson, whose quest for YouTube stardom takes him to the heart of the Great Lakes Triangle where he is imbued with the power to "see" and "hear" a new reality.
