Hi, I’m Katie!

Post by KaitlynW01 » 11 Jun 2019, 21:17

Hello, I’m Katie. For as long as I can remember, I’be been writing and reading. When I was ten, Amazing Kids Magazine published my writing, a short fable about working for what you have instead of taking from others. To this day, I still write sci-fi, fiction, non-fiction, and some historical fiction. But my favorite is reading, of course! Books are such a great way to escape reality. When I was a young girl I would snuggle up with a Twilight novel while my mom was getting chemo. When I was older I would read The Help when I was being bullied. It’s always fascinated me, how books can both detach and bring us back to the real world. I hope to bring something to the table at Online Book Club!

Welcome! :text-welcomewave: :text-welcomeconfetti:

This thread is the best place to start. :reading-4:
You're nobody's rainbow.
You're nobody's princess.
You're nobody's doorway but your own,
and the only one who gets to tell you

how your story ends is you.
