Hello! I'm Karla Holloway, James B. Duke Emerita Professor of English, African-American Studies, and Professor of Law at Duke University. In 2017 I left the academy where my classrooms and scholarship focused on literature, law, and bioethics and turned my attention to writing fiction (and tweeting -> @ProfHolloway). My début literary fiction is A Death in Harlem, a mystery set in the Harlem Renaissance (TriQuarterly 2019). Gone Missing in Harlem (April 2021), suggests my adventures with fiction 'might-could' be a trend. My second novel's mystery spans the Harlem Renaissance and the Great Depression. An infant "gone missing" in Harlem recalls NYC's first "colored" policeman to solve the mystery of a disappearance that seems 'not quite as famous' as the contemporaneous Lindbergh baby kidnapping. Meanwhile, I may -- or may not -- be at work on A Haunting in Harlem.
