Writer. Storyteller. Dog Enthusiast.
OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF KATE KOENIG WRITING
Welcome to my website. As a writer, I aim to create characters and stories that are real and relatable. They are the person occupying the seat beside you on the bus, the girl with unruly hair lost in a book, the child with wide-eyes of wonder running through the world at full speed. My passion lies in creating honest stories that do not shy away from the hard and painful truths of life while maintaining the ability to laugh at it.
A Bit About Me
Even as a young child I was always conjuring up stories and filling them with colorful characters, sharing them with anyone and everyone who would listen. I began writing at age eleven and after my first taste of storytelling, I was hooked. Novels are my main focus and I generally stick to young adult literature. YA literature allows me to tap into the depths of human emotions and motivations at a major turning point in life. Writing the genre felt like a breath of fresh air, and once I began writing it, nothing else satisfied me. I occasionally write short stories but those stories tend to venture outside of the YA world. When I listen to a moving song or take a walk through a park, I create the occasional poem, although those tend to stay in the scribbled notebook tucked inside my bedside table. On rare occasions they break free.
I am in the midst of re-writing and editing my second manuscript. In addition to the novel-in-progress, I am actively trying to find a home for a short story.
