Get to know a little more about Kat below!
First question (very important): What is your Hogwarts house?
I self-identify as a Ravenclaw. I'm definitely more clever than I am kind or brave. But the sorting hat says I'm a Hufflepuff, so let's go with Ravenpuff or Huffleclaw.
Who was your first book crush?
Stargirl from Jerry Spinelli's Stargirl. The girl has a pet mouse named Cinnamon and plays the ukelele. 'Nuff said.
Favorite Taylor Swift Song (this is a test):
Oh boy. Right now, it's Bad Blood but I also like Our Love (old school!).
Who was your favorite author when you were a teenager?
I have to pick one?! Lois Lowry, but this question is both cruel AND unusual.
What book do you think everyone should read?
The Giver by Lois Lowry. It's the most imaginative book I've ever read and will always be my favorite.
What is sure to get you to keep reading a manuscript as an editor?
I love a really strong sense of voice and when the author trusts me to figure out who a character is without telling me!
What are you most excited about in joining the Swoon Reads team?
Um, everything? I'm really excited to work with a group of people—both authors and colleagues!—that live and breathe YA.
And finally, what makes you swoon?
The first time Veronica and Logan kiss on Veronica Mars (also anything and everything involving Logan). The first bite of a really good dumpling. And summer!
