Hi, I'm Katie.
Thank you for joining me here, and allowing me to share a bit about myself. I am a native-born Montana author who rejoices in the beauty of deep crimson sunsets reflecting off of the snow-capped Rocky Mountains, and breathing in the unmistakable essence of a horse’s lather. I savor delectable words and find within writing a space to marry introspection and outward inspiration, with raw authenticity that engages the irreverent and sacred potential of femininity, all balanced by a deep love affair with the West.
My first love is for the community of small-town Montana living in which I was raised. Growing up here forged both hardship and joy in abundance. Many of my childhood neighbors still inhabit my heart today.
Instilled in me, from a young age, is a deep love for the exploration of nature and adventure. I've been favored with many an afternoon savoring the mountains through which I trek, my spirit elevated by the ripples of energy that breathe off of the emerald lakes nestled in their arms.
The most tenacious love I have is for my family and friends.
I treasure my husband, and am eternally grateful for his companionship. I had long admired this long-legged bareback rider, with his chiseled jawline and dusty cowboy hat. We were wed in a small community center in rural Montana.
I cherish the two boys we ushered into our lives and can not believe the ways they fill my heart. I'm also surrounded by the love and support of a sisterhood of friends I hold especially dear.
Should you be out in Montana and pass me by, tip your hat and say hi!
