Hello! I am a ginger girl who writes stories about magical worlds and morbid teens and Tolstoy-inspired web series.
I write Middle Grade novels as K.E. Ormsbee. THE WATER AND THE WILD is a portal fantasy out now from Chronicle Books. The sequel, THE DOORWAY AND THE DEEP, comes out October 4, 2016. THE HOUSE IN POPLAR WOOD, a standalone MG fantasy, comes out in Fall 2018.
I write Young Adult novels as Kathryn Ormsbee. LUCKY FEW is a quirky contemporary out now from Simon & Schuster BFYR. TASH HEARTS TOLSTOY, another contemporary YA, comes out 6 June 2017.
I was born and raised in the Bluegrass State. Then I went off and lived in places across the pond, like England and Spain, where I pretended I was a French ingénue. Just kidding! That only happened once. I also lived in some hotter nooks of the USA, like Austin, TX. Now I'm back in the land of Proper Autumn.
In my wild, early years, I taught English as a Foreign Language, interned with a film society, and did a lot of irresponsible road tripping. My crowning achievement is that the back of my head was in an iPhone commercial, and people actually paid me money for it.
I like clothes from the 60s, music from the 70s, and movies from the 80s. I am from the 90s.
