Katie has been writing ever since she was old enough to hold a pencil, and she has no intention of slowing down anytime soon. While her earliest stories were shared only with her horse (who was also her childhood best friend), she's now thrilled to offer her works to readers everywhere.
Katie spent the first part of her professional life as a pediatric neuropsychologist, working with teens and young adults battling cancer. While academic and scientific writing was rewarding, it wasn't her true passion, and she eventually followed her heart in spite of her fears and made the career change to full-time author.
Forests play a huge role in Katie's writing, because she's always found them especially magical. When she's not writing, Katie loves traveling, yoga, tarot cards, kayaking, and dancing. She currently lives in Northern California with her amazing husband and two very demanding cats.
