Hi, I'm Katie and I'm a writer.

I write fiction and essays about friendship and love, loss and change, mixed-race identity and cross-cultural issues, the future and the past, everyday magic, and how we find courage.

I've been working in the arts for over half my life: I majored in Theatre at the Boston Arts Academy and studied creative writing and unconventional literature at Hampshire College. I taught creative writing, comics, and manga as I began my writing career, pursuing both indie and traditional publishing paths. My first book, the surreal novella Somewhere In Between, was released in 2015. My essays and short stories have appeared in the Huffington Post, Bitch Flicks, Write From Wrong, and Xenith. I'm currently the editor of The Beautiful Worst.   

As a membership platform, Patreon is the best way for me to offer my readers original stories and exclusive content while I earn predictable income for my work. This campaign gives me the creative freedom to write about the issues that keep us all awake at night without worrying about pitching editors, outsmarting algorithims, or the financial strain from being compensated in “exposure.” In exchange, my patrons are my publishers. You have access to my stories and my notes, exclusive online events, and early releases of chapbooks and story collections. You will also be joining a community of empowered creators and audiences who are innovating the way we experience art and share our stories.

This Patreon campaign lets me share my work with you as it is written and your support will help me share these stories with the world.

I'm so excited to be on this Patreon adventure and I hope you'll come along with me.
