Katherine Locke lives and writes in a small town outside Philadelphia, where she’s ruled by her feline overlords and her addiction to chai lattes. She writes about that which she cannot do: ballet, magic, and time travel. She secretly believes all stories are fairytales in disguise. Her YA debut, THE GIRL WITH THE RED BALLOON, arrives September 2017 from Albert Whitman & Comapny.

That's his journey in Finding Center.

“People never mentioned in history books still made history.”
Katherine Locke, The Girl with the Red Balloon

“Most of the things we think are selfish aren’t at all. We’re just so conditioned to think that wanting things is wrong.”
Katherine Locke, The Girl with the Red Balloon

“I used to move gracefully. I used to know the word grace to the center of my bones. Now I seek it every day and fall short, inevitably, every day. I lost grace.”
Katherine Locke, Second Position

“This girl is magic. She's wild incantations. She's that spark that lit me back to life and I'm burning for her.”
Rebecca Paula, Everly After

“Skinny-dipping is like Paris. It's always a good idea.”
Rebecca Paula, Everly After

“I remember the way his eyes pinned my body against the backdrop of Paris as if I was some rare butterfly pinned to an exhibit box.”
Rebecca Paula, Everly After

“We’re like dominoes, Beckett and I. I’ve tipped us forward until everything is set in motion. I can’t stop us from colliding. I should enjoy the fall while it lasts. But I know the end is coming too. The quiet. The day where everything has fallen and there’s nothing left but a mess.”
Rebecca Paula, Everly After

“She throws her jeans at me and dives into the pellucid lake, slicing through the water almost without a splash. A church bell rings out in the distance, echoing in the quiet aftermath of Everly’s quick jump into the unexpected.”
Rebecca Paula, Everly After
