News Story in Naperville Sun

Pulse: Lysacek, Flatt, Spatz, Jungels

You’re not dreaming

Former city employee turns author

Former city of Naperville employee Kathryn Flatt can add author to her resume. The ex-programmer/analyst’s most recent novel, “The Dreamer Gambit,” was just released by Write Words Inc.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to have this published,” said Flatt, 56. “I have loved writing stories for as long as I can remember, but doing so has taken a back seat to a career in information technology for many years. Now to have my work recognized and published is a dream come true.”

Writing has always been Flatt’s passion, but she didn’t “seriously pursue it” until 2002. “The Dreamer Gambit” is her third novel, but her first to be published.

The contemporary mystery surrounds a pop star who lands in the “middle of a dangerous conspiracy” when she casually explains the inspiration for her first hit song. Flatt said readers will get a taste of Chicago throughout “The Dreamer Gambit.”

“Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, Macy’s, White Castle, Chicago’s Gold Coast and North Avenue Beach are some of the local references,” she said.

Flatt didn’t comment on whether any people in Naperville served as inspiration for the novel — that will remain a mystery — unless you buy the book, of course.
