At a very young age, Katie Sparks discovered the magic of books. She counted on weekly library visits and treasured receiving her first library card at the age of five. At six, she wrote her first story called Baby Carrie (still in her collection today!)

Katie knew then that writing would be in her future. By day, she is an editor for the parent consumer line at a non-profit medical association and enjoys working closely with authors and industry professionals. Immersed in the publishing industry in both her professional and personal life is a dream come true. On weekends you will often find her writing and sipping coffee at one of the many unique coffee shops in Chicago, spending time with family and friends, or curled up with a new book.

Though, sometimes you never know if that will end up being your best day as far as the creative flow.

That being said, I've come to realize I don't have writer's block as much as I don't know my story too well. It's hard and too daunting to write something if I don't know where I'm going. I don't need to have all of the details, but knowing many of them help. Though it's different for each writer, I'm starting to learn that having a detailed outline prior to writing your novel is very helpful. You may not end up keeping certain chapters, characters or scenes, but at least it gets you writing.(less)

And nothing else matters but you and your story.(less)

Teaser #3:

“Drum roll, please!” Chloe said. The entire audience buzzed. 

I sucked in my breath. Please, please let me be the next Kidz Konnection guest talk show host! I know I would do the best job EVER. Maybe better than Oprah (that’s a very big maybe, though). I promise I will be funny and very nice to all guests.
