My name is Katie Curtis.
I graduated from college in May of 2015 with a degree in creative writing. As soon as I graduated, I started looking for a job because that’s the “responsible” thing to do. My mother told me to stop. Her exact words were, “You’ve been making up stories you’re whole life. Write a book.” Since then, I’ve been writing.
I’m a fantasy writer as my main career, but on top of that, I’m also a songwriter, and, obviously, a blogger. I’m completely obsessed with fantasy, mythology, and adventure, and if I could, I would spend my life reading and listening to podcasts in those genres. As you might have guessed, I’m a total nerd. I’m also very Catholic, and I don’t think fantasy and faith conflict with each other one stinking bit.
Some other random things about me are:
I have a pet parrot named Seamus, after the poet Seamus Heaney, who basically wants to kill everyone outside of my immediate family.
I still play video games from the 1990’s.
My absolute favorite food is fried chicken.
I have never watched the Simpsons, I’m not on social media, and I almost exclusively use YouTube for research, so I pretty much never get pop culture references.
