About Us

Monkeypaw Press is an innovative publishing house located near Charleston, South Carolina. Our aim is to provide readers with a diverse selection of quality books that are eclectic, edgy, and always unique.

What’s in a name?  A lot.

The story of the monkey’s paw was written by W. W. Jacobs and originally published in 1902. Thought to be a “ghost story,” it sends the strong moral message that one should be careful when making a wish, because it may just come true.

When we were thinking about what to name our small imprint, we wanted to represent ourselves as something different, quirky, unique…like a monkey’s paw. We aren’t a cookie-cutter publishing company. We like to think of ourselves as individuals, each of us bringing our own sensibilities to the table. So while the list of our titles will always reflect the diversity of our tastes, you can always count on the quality of the writing, the depth of the storytelling, and the emotional connection you’ll feel to the characters that our authors create. It’s our promise to you, our readers.

For us, the monkey paw that W. W. Jacobs wrote about over a hundred years ago represents something else entirely. While we are careful about what we wish for, we dare to dream, and dream big. And when you dream big, wishes do come true!

Kathryn Anne Michaels


Kathryn Anne Michaels was born a twin in Germany during the post–World War II baby boomer years, but by the time she hit her formative years, her family had relocated to America. Her educational career began with nursing, but she soon became interested in social work, landing a job as a Child Protective Services social worker in the mountains of rural Appalachia, where she fell in love with the locals and found an additional calling in river running, swift water rescue, ski patrolling, and mountain search and rescue. Kathryn eventually left social work and returned to family practice nursing—something that allowed her more time to raise her own daughters as a single mom.


Refresher Course

For me, writing is my full-time job. I often get swept up by my characters or the plot points I'm developing; and as I immerse myself in finishing my trilogy I've already begun the research on my next project. But working hard has its rewards-- planned relaxation!...

What do I think makes a good story?

For me, a good story is comprised of three things: a really interesting conflict, a flawed protagonist and a satisfying ending.  I really want to go on a journey with the writer.  I don’t want to be able to guess what’s going to happen next in the plot, I want the...
