about kate

for the longest time people have told me that i seem happiest when I'm writing. and that's because it's true.

for me, it's always been about words. because words are more than words; they are feelings, desires, aches, sticks of TNT just waiting to be lit. without words, nothing makes sense to me. without words, I'm not sure where I'd be. writing stories is how i understand the world. writing stories is how i understand me.

I just released the first book in my new YA series, The Blood Race. 

The novel follows main character Ion, a troubled teen with unusual powers which he struggles to keep concealed. Through a series of strange occurrences, and a run-in with Hawk, the beautiful, mysterious, yet savage girl next door, Ion involuntarily stumbles headlong into an extra dimension—a secret reality that’s been hidden since the beginning of time; one that was made especially to protect and train teenagers with the abilities he possesses—”anomalies”. A secret place of intense training, hidden from humanity and created to defeat a rising darkness which a prophecy declares could swallow future earth.

when i'm not writing, 

i'm probably traveling, surfing, or tackling volunteer environmental work for the student group I co-founded with my sister, called Blue Freedom. You can check out our film project Voiceless HERE.
