I’m Kate. I live in Portland, Oregon with my two dogs. I love rainy weather. I’m a (very) amateur photographer, and when I’m not out prowling with my camera, I’m writing. My books include Playing in the Apocalypse, A Shack On the Outskirts of Heaven, Stolen Son, and Zen Flowers. My interests are many and include writing, dogs, photography, gardening, sustainable living, world music, indigenous cultures, and archaeology.
