In her debut novel, Three Ways to Disappear, Katy Yokom explores the story of journalist, Sarah DeVaughan.  Leaving behind a nomadic and dangerous career as a journalist, DeVaughan returns to India, the country of her childhood and a place of unspeakable family tragedy, to help preserve the endangered Bengal tigers. Meanwhile, at home in Kentucky, her sister, Quinn—also deeply scarred by the past and herself a keeper of secrets—tries to support her sister, even as she fears that India will be Sarah’s undoing.  In researching the novel, Katy Yokom traveled to India, funded by a grant from the Elizabeth George Foundation. In 2019, she received an Al Smith Fellowship Award for artistic excellence from the Kentucky Arts Council.
