Get to know Kathryn:
Birthday? August 11
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.
What themes do you like to write about? Love, loneliness and connection, the environment.
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? "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.
