From the time she was a young girl, Kate has always loved telling stories. Particularly one about a mouse called Livingston that resided in her ear and whispered mischievous ideas to her while she slept.
Going into high school as an avid reader (still one to this day), she got a taste of creative writing when she wrote a 75-page fan-fiction novella of the NBC TV series, Heroes, a former obsession of hers. The writing bug remained with her all through her years at Salve Regina University when she wrote for the student newspaper.
Eventually, she moved up to the Arts & Entertainment Editor, and the following year, Kate was promoted to Managing Editor.
During her time at Salve, Kate became an avid concert photographer. She traveled from state to state by trains, planes and automobiles. With her trusty Canon 6D, Kate captured incredible live moments from intimate stages to large festivals. Additionally, she interviewed bands and wrote reviews to accompany the photos. To this day, Kate can still be found in the photo pit.
When she's not traumatizing her characters, Kate can be found traveling the world. More recently she explored Iceland, where she got the idea for her debut novel, Dark Exposure. She currently resides in Virginia, where she's either reading or rewatching Supernatural.
