TASSIE KALAS writes humorous short stories inspired by her big, fat, Greek life, about growing up and growing older, and laughing without fear of the future.

Her stories have appeared in the popular and inspiring Chicken Soup for the Soul: Age is Just a Number, and Laugh Out Loud, 40 Women Humorists Celebrate the Then and Now…Before We Forget, an anthology which was named a finalist for one of the best humor books of 2019 by the Next Generation Indie Books Awards program.  

A member of the Houston Writers' Guild, her stories were awarded honorary recognition in the guild's anthology, Outside the Window- Tales of the World.  Find her work in The Ocotillo Review, How I Got Published and What I Learned Along the Way, and 'Tis the Season--a Holiday Anthology 2020.

Her flash fiction piece, "Taking the Lead," won the Writer's Digest Your Story Contest #103, and her honorable mention winning tale, "First Dance," appeared in the Spider Road Press.

A native Houstonian, she loves outdoor patios and frozen margaritas, making people laugh, and visiting her three grown children-wherever they are. She hopes to leave her readers with smiles on their faces, warmth in their hearts, and the spirit of  happily ever laughter in their souls.
