About K.L.Romo

auth-headshot-01-06-17Being A Writer

K.L. Romo enjoys writing about things on the fringe: teetering dangerously on the edge is much more interesting than standing safely in the middle. When not lost in words and commas, she’s most likely being snarky with her kids or making gooey desserts for the grandkids.

K.L. loves noisy clocks, fuzzy blankets, anything pink, and all things Santa Claus. And she HATES the word normal. She is a member of the Women’s Fiction Writers’ Association and the Writers’ League of Texas. Please visit her at or @klromo on Twitter.

I am excited to be an intern at Ashlar Center for Narrative Arts, whose mission is to heal trauma for women refugees by telling their stories, simultaneously documenting social injustice.  Also see Women, War, and What They Fed the Children.

My new novel Life Before was just released February 12, 2016. Kirsche-Romo-HB-final

Mini description: Recent empty-nester Elaine Dearborn suddenly finds herself experiencing life as Eliza Darling, a reformed prostitute in 1907 Dallas, who is determined to shut down the sex trade that has taken so many young lives.

Blog- The View From Here

I post about random issues.  Some are funny, some are sad, some are painful.  Many are about kids and family. I also post book reviews, and articles relevant to the writing life.


I’ve published articles about being an imperfect parent of imperfect kids in Your Teen Magazine.

I’ve also published an article about The Dallas Golden Gloves on
