Katrina Carrasco is queer and Latina, with roots in Southern California and home in Seattle, Washington. Her novels and short stories explore passing, gender performance, and the pleasures—and price—of satisfying desire. Katrina’s debut novel, THE BEST BAD THINGS (MCD/Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2018), was a finalist in the Lambda Literary Awards and Washington State Book Awards and won the Shamus Award for Best First P.I. Novel. She has received support from the Corporation of Yaddo, I-Park Foundation, Inc., Blue Mountain Center, Jentel, Willapa Bay AiR, Mineral School, Lighthouse Works, Artist Trust, the Whiting Foundation, and the Tom and Phyllis Burnam Graduate Scholarship. Katrina completed her MFA in Fiction in June 2015. Her second novel, ROUGH TRADE, is scheduled for publication in April 2024 from MCD/FSG. She is working on her third book.
