About Katie


Age: 29+1

Occupation: Youth Services Librarian

About Me: I’ve been working at a public library in PA for 11 years. I work in the children’s department, but also maintain the Young Adult/Teen collection, meaning I get to buy all the books my little heart desires for the library (dream job, anyone?!) and be the judge, jury, and executioner for which books get pulled from the collection. It’s fun :)

Fun Facts:

  • I have an unhealthy addiction to Pinterest, checking my email, cooking, Chinese food, and painting my nails.
  • Despite my fondness for ninjas (and several years of gymnastics training), I have no coordination whatsoever and any use of a samurai sword would probably result in missing extremities.
  • Other obsessions passions include art and photography, tattoos (both getting them and admiring the art), Marilyn Monroe, stuffed monkeys, Duke Blue Devils basketball, and the city of Philadelphia (where my heart truly lies).
  • I love corny B-grade SyFy disaster movies and creature features.


  1. Hello!

    I’m setting up an October/November Blog Tour to celebrate the upcoming release of my second Zephrum Gates book, “Zephrum Gates & The Strange Magical Treasure.”

    I’m looking for Young Adult Fiction Bloggers, Science Fiction People, Harry Potter Lovers, Parent Bloggers, Kid Bloggers, & anybody who likes a fun magical story. Would you like to do a book review, write a guest post — and participate in a fun giveaway?

    I can send out review copies of “Zephrum Gates & The Strange Magical Treasure” in a PDF format!
    Here’s a link to a Video Book Trailer I put together for it:

    And here’s a link to my Blog Tour Page: http://zephrumgatesblogtour-2013.blogspot.com/
