Author's Bio

AKA Katerwriter, Kate began her literary career writing bad poetry at age ten. After working as a grocery clerk, nursing assistant and home health aide, city bus driver, museum aide, a variety of clerical positions, and K-12 substitute teacher, all while studying (BA 1999 – Prescott College, MA 2010 – University of Wales, Aberystwyth) and raising a family, scribbling looked like a suitable diversion. She's gathered her creative writing, editing, and publishing-related skills in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, New Mexico, Wales, and Kenya, which serves her well as chief word-whacker at Starstone Literary Services.
