About Me

This is the part of the blog where Kathryn "K.S." Powers talks about herself in third person.


Kathryn lives in Columbus, Ohio, and has lived here for her entire life.  She has an aversion to fall and winter, which is unfortunate since it sometimes snows in May.

When Kathryn was little, she was once asked by a teacher, "What do you want to be when you grow up?"  She answered, "A zebra!"  She was then surprised to learn that this is not biologically possible.  (Yet.)  Her fascination with animals never faded, and Kathryn eventually decided that writing and drawing pictures about animals was just as good as being one.  (Maybe better.  Zebra Kathryn couldn't write or draw with hooves.  Plus, she doesn't need to worry about lions eating her.)


By day, Kathryn works as an Office Manager for a specialty library.  By night, she stays up until the wee hours writing about swashbuckling ferrets and equine heroes, and doodling everything fuzzy and furry.  She also serves as the Illustrator Coordinator for Central and Southern Ohio's chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.  She loves dedicating her time to the organization, and posts summaries of the meetings, events, and workshops she attends here on her blog.

When Kathryn isn't writing or illustrating, she is trying to catch up on all those hours of lost sleep.  (Her husband says you can't undo years of sleep deprivation, but she swears it's possible!)  She loves reading, watching Disney movies, and anything that pertains to The Legend of Zelda video games.  As you can tell, she's pretty cool--even without stripes and hooves.
