Katie writes fantasy romance—featuring scenes that pass the Bechdel test. She has earned a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in both studio art and English. She also has a J.D., meaning she spends her 7-4 as legal counsel for a telecommunications company. When she’s not wordsmithing, she likes to craft jewelry, dye people’s hair so she/he/they resemble mermaids, binge Youtube videos (mostly fan theory videos on Steven Universe), and drink all the peppermint tea/ coffee. Katie lives in Little Rock, Arkansas with her husband, human child, and four fur children.
