Katie Alender (rhymes with “calendar”!) grew up in South Florida. She is the third of four children (three girls and a boy) and the child of three very loving and encouraging parents.

She attended high school at the Palm Beach County School of the Arts, studying Communication Arts. From there, she went on to the Florida State University Film School, which led her to her current hometown, a tiny hamlet on the West Coast known as “Los Angeles.”

She enjoys writing, reading, sewing (especially quilts), gardening, photography, and hanging out with her husband, her daughter, and her dogs, Scooter and Frodo.

Her first brush with publication was the article “So You Want to Live On Mars?” published in Sassy magazine in December 1991.

Once I was repeating a phrase to myself over and over, and when I turned on the radio, the phrase I'd been repeating was the name of the song that was playing. Also, my daughter says creepy things sometimes... once, when I was sitting in her bedroom, she said, "Mommy, the man is mad at you," and I said, "Why?" and she said, "Because you're sitting on him!" Needless to say, I got up and moved. ;-)(less)

I got the e-book and audiobook from the library at the same time, and went back and forth between them... the audiobook was a far superior experience. The narrator is brilliant and transforms the sometimes ordinary prose into a much more fulfilling l ...more

“That's the pathetic thing about high school. Everyone tries so hard to be something they aren't. It's gotten so I don't know who I am, so how can I even try to be who I am, much less who I'm not?
My problem is that I don't even fit in with the misfits.
I don't fit anywhere.”
Katie Alender, Bad Girls Don't Die

“Just say something real. Everyone just always tries so hard, and it all comes out the same. I just want someone to say something real.”
Katie Alender, Bad Girls Don't Die

“Oh." He sat in confused silence for a few seconds. "Can I ask you a very serious question?"
"I rather you didn't," I said.
He stared straight into my eyes. "If you were an animal, what animal would you be?"
WAIT, WHAT? "Wait, what?"
"It's a classic icebreaker."
"If I were an ANIMAL...?"
He faked a sigh and checked an imaginary watch. "Your inability to answer the question doesn't bode well for-"
"I refuse to answer that," I said. "On the grounds that it's probably the stupidest thing I've ever been asked."
He stared at me, frowning. "I hear your subconscious saying MONKEY.”

“O may I join the choir invisible
Of those immortal dead who live again
In minds made better by their presence; live
In pulses stirred to generosity,
In deeds of daring rectitude...”
George Eliot, O May I Join the Choir Invisible! And Other Favourite Poems

“Keep true. Never be ashamed of doing right. Decide what you think is right and stick to it.”
George Eliot

“Mrs Draper took this as an order for her departure, and crept silently out of the room, closing the door behind her with the long protracted elaborate click which is always produced by an attempt at silence on such occasions.”
Anthony Trollope, The Last Chronicle of Barset

“You shall be my pet, and my poppet, and my dearest little duck all the days of your life.”
Anthony Trollope, Can You Forgive Her?

“You know Mildred would never do anything wrong or foolish. I reflected a little sadly that this was only too true and hoped I did not appear too much that kind of person to others. Virtue is an excellent thing and we should all strive after it, but it can sometimes be a little depressing.”
Barbara Pym, Excellent Women
