KC Kahler has worked as a writer and editor in both non-profit and academic settings. Until discovering Jane Austen Fan Fiction several years ago, KC’s writing had been limited to the dry and technical, which is a shame, since she considers herself witty and sparkling. Her first novel, Boots & Backpacks, was published in 2014 by Meryton Press.
KC blogs about Austen and other pop culture topics. In 2015 her popular Austen + The Onion Headlines meme was featured in several articles:
- Jane Austen Films and Onion Headlines: A Perfect Match by Sarah Seltzer at Flavorwire
- Pride And Prejudice 2005 + Onion headlines = one totally endearing meme by Marah Eakin at AV Club
- Jane Austen Meets Modern Day Satire With The Onion Headlines by Julianne Adams at Pixable
- ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and The Onion: A Match Made in Meme Heaven by Emmanuel Hapsis at KQED Arts
- ‘Pride And Prejudice’ Screenshots Overlaid With Headlines From ‘The Onion’ Works Surprisingly Well by Alex McKinnon at Junkee
KC lives on a four-acre slice of Penn’s Woods with her husband and two dogs. They enjoy hiking, gardening, and being beer snobs.
