About Katie

~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-five-year-old’s body; in other words, I’m an old soul, more specifically an indigo child, 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.

For further specifics, I’m also an ENTJ, from Houses Gryffindor and Horned Serpent, and my Life Path is a 3. So in other words, watch out; I’m a force to be reckoned with and one of the rarest kind of people you’ll find. If you ever meet/get to know me, you’ll know what I mean.

I moved to Boston due to an unexpected job opportunity non-writing related. I’m trying as best I can to explore more of anything and everything all the while making my apartment as adult as possible. Oh, and my book. So until completion, my downtime involves consuming Starbucks while researching, documenting and construing ideas for that book about the historical roots of Arthurian legend (in a fictitious plot). However, I don’t just write historical fiction; in my stories, each has its own identity. 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. (and other places) with a personal library and 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 by 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 of 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.
