By Vanessa Barneveld Do you need total silence when you write or do you pump up the volume on your playlist? It wasn’t so long ago that, despite being married to a musician, there was no room in my writing cave for music. I needed rarefied conditions. The kind where, if a pin dropped on… Read More

Katie never knew she was a writer. Her childhood obsessions centered on old movies, costumes, fashion, playing dress up, and books. Lots of books. On her quest to play make believe for a living she decided she wanted to be a fashion designer and after satisfying her practical parents by graduating from UCLA with a BA in Communication Studies she went on to pursue her design dreams with a Professional Designation in Fashion Design from FIDM. She spent five years helping to design romantic dresses that were sold everywhere from Anthropologie to Nordstrom before the economic downturn led to a career shift and that practical degree came in handy. Now in charge of the ecommerce business for In Bloom Lingerie, she was asked to start the company blog. Not knowing what to say about lingerie but needing to use bridal keywords, she decided to start a fictional serial about how a girl named Olivia Bloom, who worked for In Bloom Lingerie, became engaged. And that is when Katie fell in love with storytelling and the path to make believe became clear. She has not looked back since. Katie lives in Los Angeles with her husband.

My agent once told me it takes five books for readers to associate your name with your genre. That’s excellent, I thought. Until I took a wide look at the stories I’ve written and the ones I plan to write and quickly realized my books don’t fit into one – or even two – neatly… Read More

Her BFA in Photography and Graphic Design has granted her a wide assortment of creative knowledge that serves mostly as inspiration.

(Plus, it's the closest to Broadway she'll ever get.)

I don’t remember the details of the story itself, but I do remember it was the start of something that would last for the… Read More
