discussing her story

“Man on the Run”

recently published in

The Best American Mystery Stories 2012

“Man on the Run” is set in Ithaca, New York, and tells the story of two old ladies, and their long-lost niece, who is running away from an abusive boyfriend.  The story which harkens back to an event in the author’s father’s boyhood, shows how, even after a lifetime of fear, a person can be surprised by her own courage.  “Man on the Run” first appeared in  The New England Review, and now has just been published in The Best Mystery Stories 2012, a must-read collection, edited by the best-selling novelist Robert Crais, author of the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike novels.


Kathleen Ford has published in Yankee, Redbook, Ladies’ Home Journal, and  in Southern Review, Virginia Quarterly, Antioch, North American Review, New England Review, Sewanee Review and elsewhere.  Two of her stories have won PEN awards for Syndicated Fiction.  She has written a novel titled  Jeffrey County.  Kathleen lives in Charlottesville, and is currently writing stories about the Irish soldiers in World War I, and is completing a novel about the Great War.
