Katie is a TX-based picture book author/illustrator with several manuscripts/dummies. 

She loves writing and drawing and reading and sharing stories. Her goal is to make books that families love to read together–again and again, as her three-year old would say!

Katie grew up in Rhode Island, attended the Rhode Island School of Design, and worked for ten years for an award-winning interaction design firm.

While there, she spent her time traveling the world (well, some of it) and designing awesome interactive experiences for grown-ups and kids.

These days, she lives in The Woodlands, TX with a wonderful husband and three inspiring little kids. They all love (in alphabetical order) adventures, art, books, bread, gardening, God, music, and road trips with their camper. You'll usually find them out on the street playing with the neighbors.


The house is rarely clean, but the door is always open if you need a friend, a snack, or a chat about children's books.
