Diary of a Heretic by Kathleen Maher

Pure Fiction 

My online fiction blog opens with an episode of my novel, novella, or short story in progress.

The categories listed on the far right sidebar are completed works of fiction. Some I’ve rewritten and others are waiting to be rewritten.

Also listed on the sidebar are links to my flash fiction—stories in fewer than 500 words.

My writing doesn’t belong to a specific genre.

Something missing…

By Sonja Nitschke, editor

Oct 5, 2008: I don’t think there’s any question if Kathleen Maher is an excellent writer because, not to put too fine a point on it, she is. Her writing is clear, sharp, and engaging.

But the plot, I don’t know. Perhaps it’s because it seems to be highly spiritual in nature as the main character says, "Everyone needs to know and say why they’re alive." I usually prefer stories other than what this can provide, and that is nobody’s fault but my own. So if stories like this is your cup of tea, then I highly recommend you take a look because Maher’s writing is definitely worth it.

Many layers to enjoy

By Onelove, member

Mar 17, 2012: Diary of a Heretic is a totally original site by a gifted writer named Kathleen Maher. I’ve been spending hours reading her work in progress (the main part of the site), as well as her finished work, which resides on the sidebar. The work in progress is an ambitious piece with the delightful title "James Bond and the Girls of Woodstock".

Eclectic, surprising, delightful

By Rousby, member

Mar 3, 2010: This is one of my favorite sites on the web. The writing is of astonishingly high quality, and the stories are always entertaining—sometimes hilarious, sometimes tragic, and often quite sexy, without veering into "erotica." In fact, they are hard to classify, as they don’t fit into any genre, except, perhaps, literary fiction. Which, to me, is the best kind. As an example, the current story "Brooke and Tara/Scenic Overlook" tells the potentially explosive story of a movie star’s love affair with an underage 16-year old girl/woman. But the affair unfolds [more . . .]

Read it regularly

By Bosco, member

Dec 4, 2011: Kathleen Maher is a gifted fiction writer. The stories are unusual but always compelling and her characters are three-dimensional. She calls her blog posts "work in progress" but they are better than a lot of stuff I read. I highly recommend Diary of a Heretic
