Welcome to The Kate Project! I'm Kate.

I'm a newspaper reporter who started writing long before I even knew what a newspaper was. This is my side project, a way to use the writing voice that doesn't quite fit into traditional journalism in a place where it's OK if I'm part of the story.

I'm from Wisconsin but have lived in North Carolina - first the coast, now the middle - for the past five years. My hair and I have yet to come to terms with the humidity.

Other frequent parts of my story: my cute husband Brandon, our rescue pup Maisy Bleu Pepperpots, our two cats Sophie and Lenny, and a handful of hobbies - things like: running and coffee and photos and books and cooking and wine and cross-stitching and CAPSLOCK! and snacks. (Always snacks.)

Pleased to meet you.
