I’m a writer, wife, and mama. I’m a Washington State University alum, an avid reader, a hiker and a yogi, a country music fan, and shopper of Target, Sephora, and any bookstore I happen upon. I love baking, the ocean, pedicures, sunshine, Instagram, Dirty Dancing and The Princess Bride, Jelly Bellies, makeup, true crime documentaries, and Friday Night Lights.

My debut young adult novel, Kissing Max Holden, was published by Swoon Reads/Macmillan on August 1, 2017. My second novel, The Impossibility of Us, will be out July 31, 2018, and my third, How the Light Gets In, is expected Summer, 2019. I’m repped by Victoria Marini of the Irene Goodman Agency.

  1. I just read that you save pics of everything – I do that too… it gets cumbersome, doesn’t it?? So I just requested an invite to Pinterest (it’s still in beta so you have to be “invited”) – have you tried it??

  2. Katy, I was wondering if you were interested in having a young adult author visit your blog for one day in September. I can give you more details if you send me an email.
