Overview

Hello! I'm Katharyn. I'm a Ghostwriter and Editor. I offer a wide range of services, from first-draft ghostwriting to a polishing edit. I specialize in Science Fiction/ Fantasy, and while I cut my teeth on all things Young Adult, I work with clients across all genres and age categories. As a novelist, I'm represented by Writers House – I recently inked two different two-book deals with both HarperCollins and Penguin RandomHouse (formal announcement coming this Spring). I have been a contracted screenwriter for Rainstorm Productions, and am currently working with a start-up production company as a screenwriter.

I graduated with my BA in English in 2011, my MFA in Screenwriting in 2014, and will graduate with my MA in Literature later this year. I reside in Los Angeles, California.
