About Katie

img_0422~Every adventure is a chance to live the way you dream.~

I’m a fellow OSU alumnus with a B.A. in English & Creative Writing. My heritage consists of mostly German and Italian with western European hits. I’m a forty year-old woman trapped in a twenty-four year-old’s body; in other words, I’m an old soul who sees and thinks very differently from the average twenty-something. I’m what they call an original personality. Also I’m that person, a Leo Rooster, who always asks for your birthday for astrological purposes during introductions.

I’m studying medical coding so I can work at home in my pajamas and have more leg-room for traveling. Oh, and my book. So until completion, my down time involves consuming Starbucks while researching, documenting and construing ideas for that book about the historical roots of Arthurian legend (in a fictitious plot). However in my stories, each has its own identity; I don’t just write historical fiction. I have contemporary, thriller, romance, as well as fantasy and sci-fi brewing on my Google Drive. Finally, I aspire to live in the U.K. with a personal library & room with a big black German Shepherd. Maybe find a man I can travel with as well as entertain, annoy and molest for the rest of our lives.

What Do You Enjoy Most About Writing?

The fact that writing a story, a good original story, cannot be planned. It comes in bouts of inspiration and randomness, and when you’re lucky enough to get a moment like that, you become consumed in it. After the scene is typed on the screen, you want to go back and read it over and over.

What Do You Look Forward to Most in Upcoming & Current Adventures?

To put my restlessness to good use and see new things. To get lost in a place full of simplicity wrapped in modernity. To attain new opportunities of any kind. To experience moments that inspire poetry.
