Hi! I'm a freelance writer with seven years of experience, including three years’ experience ghostwriting, and 20 complete novels so far. I specialize in romance (LGBTQ and straight), with experience in paranormal, urban fantasy, high fantasy, and contemporary romance. My ghosted work consistently receives 5 star reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads.

I strive to develop a collaborative process with my clients. I want to understand your vision as closely as possible, and capture your voice on-page. I love working collaboratively to build an engaging and satisfying story with a detailed, consistent world and relatable, flawed characters.

All my life I’ve been curious about narrative—narratives we write ourselves, and the narratives we see in the world around us. I studied American history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, interested not in the large-scale shifts of law and order but in the smaller stories of activists and people in the margins. After college, I worked as a journalist. Where ever I went, I was looking for a story, incessantly interviewing people just to sate my own curiosity: male strippers, professional pinball players, amateur boxers, labor activists, late-nineties software developers, performance artists, whoever would talk to me and answer my nosy questions.

When I’m not writing, I’m busy being a jock here in lovely Raleigh, NC. I'm a climber, boxer, surfer, and cyclist!

I offer outline creation, manuscript ghostwriting, developmental editing, and coaching. Let’s bring your ideas to life!!

Curious about what it's like to work with me, or about the collaborative process more generally? Shoot me a message to book a quick no-obligations informational call!

Kate gave me exactly what I was looking for and more--she not only helped me organize my very scattered novel outline, but dove into the lore/world with me and shaped the plot into something much stronger. Would highly recommend!

Kate is one of the best ghostwriters I've ever worked with. She captured my ideas for a contemporary romance and created an exciting story that was compelling, sexy, and creative—just what you want in a romance novel! I can't wait to work together again.

Kevin Hale
Kate is very knowledgable with the roles that she can assume in a wide variety of situations that you may need. Her ability to nudge me in the right direction with her series of questioning helped out greatly. I am looking forward to working with Kate again in the next aspect of my writing in order to help me polish off my ability to tell a good story worth printing.
