Kylie Schachte works as a tutor and mentor to high school students, teaching everything from creative writing to archaeology. She was a Pitch Wars 2017 mentee, and her YA mystery YOU’RE NEXT will be published with Jimmy Patterson Books in 2020. Kylie lived in nine different cities–from Moscow to Los Angeles–before moving to Portland, Oregon, which she now calls home. When she’s not writing, Kylie can be found going to concerts, hiking around the Pacific Northwest, and refereeing between her tiny cat, Matilda, and giant dog, Clementine (the cat always wins).
