Kat is a high school English teacher living in Pennsylvania who has been buried in and under books for thirty-some years. A lifelong learner, Kat currently has two masters degrees: one in English Literature, and another in Clinical & Counseling Psychology, plus an unofficial degree in true crime podcasts. She puts far too much stock into words and has been writing since she was twelve years old. Kat is an avid collector of books, typewriters, feelings, and beat-up running shoes that carry miles of self-preservation. And also: cats.
