Get to know Kathryn:

When did you start writing? I've been writing since I was a little girl, but I began to get serious about learning craft and writing for publication about 2005.  

When and what and where did you first get published?  When I was in elementary school, I had a poem published in a kid's column of a birdwatching magazine that my dad subscribed to.  My first paid, professional publication was a nonfiction essay published in the online literary journal flashquake.  

Why  do you write?

I'm a shy person, and I tend to be a wall flower at parties. Writing is my way of speaking on paper.  Because of this, I often write about themes of loneliness and connection.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?

"Beauty" by Robin McKinley made me want to be a writer.  I loved the lushness of the prose and the tenderness of the love story.  As a writer, I've found myself returning again and again to the traditional fairy tale setting and to various retellings of the Beauty and the Beast tale.
