Hey there!

I’m Kate. I write for kids. I’m a certified K-6 teacher, a reading specialist, and the Assistant Regional Advisor for Western Pennsylvania SCBWI. I’m thrilled to be represented by the fabulous Tracey Adams at Adams Literary.

I’m a big time snacker and a wanna-be runner, but skiing is my thing. I also REALLY love my puppy. I read my writing aloud as I revise, so she hears my stories over and over (and over!) again. Luckily, she’s a very good listener.
