Hello friends! We’re very pleased to announce we have a new contributing writer joining us at The Midnight Garden
Kate zips through books as fast as I do and shares my love of YA scifi, gruesome crime thrillers, and sexy romances. She’s one of the few people I can text at four in the morning because I need to DISCUSS a book I just finished–and the awesome thing is, she’s often awake to text me back.
After knowing each other for about a year, we recently discovered that we have 90% book compatibility, which is kind of amazing. But at the same time, I’m excited that she’s joining us because she brings a fresh perspective and voice to the blog, and is certainly going to be keeping us on our toes.
Without further ado, here’s a little more about Kate in her own words. Please help us welcome her to the blog!
Kate is a city girl who grew up in an A-frame house in the middle of backwoods Georgia.
She cries at sappy romance novels and poetry but is uncomfortable with real-life romantic gestures, weddings, and Valentine’s Day. She doesn’t enjoy chocolate or cake of any kind. She can’t eat before noon, but she loves breakfast foods at every other time of the day. She has five sisters, and two of them are her lifelong best friends. She hates being cold.
She loves dinosaurs because they are real-life dragons, and can (and will—with apologies) recite all the dialogue while watching Jurassic Park. She is terrified of any creature possessing more than four legs, but has absolutely no fear of any animal with a properly non-creepy leg count. She refuses to take a side in the battle between cats and dogs.
She is an actress and a producer, and is married to an exceptionally talented writer. She lives in Los Angeles. She works on political campaigns and with a children’s charity, and has, in the past, been a legal assistant, a manager at a Fortune 500 company, a publicist, and a stylist. She still shops as though it is her job, though she’s glad it isn’t. She would rather read than do almost anything else in the world.
As we head into fall, you’re going to see more exciting developments here at The Midnight Garden. Thanks, as always, for bearing with us as we transition into new ventures!
I’d also like to add a personal thanks to Tonya, who celebrates her first anniversary with us this month, and to the lovely K., who’s been with the blog since the beginning. You all are such phenomenal writers and just the nicest people, and I’m so lucky to share this space with you.
