Books she loves combine beautiful, razor-sharp writing with a high-concept plot and surprising, nuanced characters. High-tension romances, big personalities, deep emotional journeys, rural settings, sibling relationships, and ambitious characters will usually catch her attention.
Acquiring inclusively is a priority of Kate's, and she's eagerly looking for manuscripts from authors of color, disabled, neuroatypical, queer/MOGAI authors, and authors of other marginalized identities.
Kate is available for speaking at conferences, book clubs, colleges, and schools about publishing, writing fiction, and editing, and for teaching workshops on a variety of writing topics, including advanced prose techniques, building a strong story spine, emotionally resonant plot and stakes, working with an editor, and revision strategies to take your work to the next level.
