Member Since
March 2008


Katie Davis is the author/illustrator of over a dozen traditionally published books for children, from picture books to middle grade and young adult novels. They’ve sold over 755,000 copies worldwide, which is why she self-published How to Write a Children's Book and How to Promote Your Children's Book, both #1 Amazon bestsellers.

Because Katie’s secret superpower is her ability to teach writers about writing, tech, and marketing their books, she created digital courses and products for writers such as How to Create Your Author Platform (and Market Your Books without Being Pushy), Video Idiot Boot Camp, and Launch Your Book Blueprint. She’s also co-created the largest and first live online conference of its kind, Picture Book Summit.

“Jesus called His followers to be a lot of things, but I have yet to find where He warned us to be safe. We are not called to be safe, we are simply promised that when we are in danger, God is right there with us. And there is no better place to be than in His hands.”
