Frequently Asked Questions


Kathryn or K.E.?
I write Middle Grade novels as K.E. Ormsbee and Young Adult novels as Kathryn Ormsbee.

What does K.E. stand for?
Kathryn Elise. And I’ve gone by just about every possible variant of those two names. Most of my friends just call me “Heyyy." Ormsbee stands for Ormsbee.

Will there be a third book in the Water & the Wild series?
YES! It is entitled The Current & the Cure and will come out May 2018. For more information, see this blog post. I'll be posting updates on my blog and social media accounts.

Are you on social media?
I am. You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I tend to be most active on Insta, and I love hearing from readers there, so don't be afraid to reach out!

Who is your agent?
I’m represented by the magnificent Beth Phelan at The Bent Agency.

I have a question you haven't answered. Where should I send it?
RIGHT HERE.
