Meet Katie 

Hi y’all, I’m Katie. 🙂 

I am… a dreamer. I have been writing stories since I could scribble with a crayon. I’m a children’s and young adult author, educator, and married homeschool mother of three kids. Our family shares our home in Indianapolis, Indiana with a bunch of cats and dogs. 

I have a passion for good stories.

I love to daydream about them, read them, draw them, and of course, write them, and I love to help others write their own stories, too. 

So, let’s dream together, and make our dreams come true… on the page!

The Why & How

I have been writing for many years, and have self-published two young adult fiction novels and a children’s picture book. I have many more books in the works. And in addition to my own writing, I am also a teacher and a homeschool mom. My favorite part of my student teaching experience in college was developing and implementing Writing Workshops with my students, and I took this with me into my education career. I have taught writing in a wide variety of settings, most recently online. I love to share the joys of turning a tiny flicker of inspiration into a fully formed idea on the page. I am so excited to be able to share this joyful process with you.
