About the Team

Katie Cross

Enneagram 3

I like to eat peanut butter on my grapes because it takes like a PB&J. 

I write the books, manage the team, and interact with the fans. Mostly, I write the books. :) 

Sweet baby pineapple, but this job is the best because of who I work with, the utter flexibility, and all the time I spend in worlds of my own making.

Enneagram 1 w2

Lifting weights makes me feel like superwoman.

I’m the Social Media Manager, Book Launch Director, and I take on virtual assistant work behind the scenes to make sure that the magic and girl power makes it to each and every reader.

I love what I do because Katie’s worlds remind me that we were made for more, for magic, and have both purpose and power within us.

Enneagram 6 w7

I love collecting antiques with my favorite being a dictionary from the 1700s that I purchased in a little country bookstore while visiting Ireland. My next goal is to have a book that dates to the 1600s.

I do all things customer support and actively assist and interact with our awesome readers both on social media and email! 

Katie has done an incredible job of building a team that feels more like a family and I love that I get to be a part of getting these books in the hands of her amazing readers!

Darcee H.

Enneagram type 2 - the helper. 

I love to craft and paint! 

I am a Facebook moderator for the Network Series Facebook group and  a backup moderator for Gemma on the Romance Rockstars group. I try to keep everyone happy and engaged on the page as well as let our newbies in! 

I love KCW because these books speak to me. They are powerful and eye opening and make me take a look at myself. I can see myself in these characters and have learned a lot by reading them. They are so easily relatable to real life and the stories are just exactly right. I feel like I know all these women in real life.

Gemma H.

Enneagram 2

I read upwards of 300 books a year for fun.

I help Katie keep the wheels going on the Romance Rockstars Facebook group and backup Darcee with The Network Series Facebook group. I am also lucky enough to be able to read most of her work before anyone else. #dreamcometrue

I became a fan of Katie’s a couple of years ago through the Health and Happiness Society books, since then I have also fallen in love with her world of Alkarra. The way she spins her worlds are magic and we can all use a little magic in our lives.

Fun fact: I just learned to ride a horse in the Canadian Rocky Mountains!

I am the newest Beta-Reader and I could not be more excited!

I love that Katie tells the important stories in life through fiction. I love that I can see parts of myself in almost every character she brings to life. I count it a joy to get lost in her books.

Meyers Briggs: ENFJ- A

At KCWriting, I am tasked with putting together the Alkarra Compendium for YA Fantasy. It will be a reference to all things magic in Katie’s world for readers to look up any person, place, or thing. I also help with customer service!

I love that being a part of this team feels like being a part of a family. Everyone is so kind and we all get along. We seem to mesh into a cohesive, well-oiled machine that gets the job done!

Enneagram 9

I run my own book review website.

I run the YA Fantasy World of Alkarra Wiki site.

I love Katie’s books because they contain such vivid and loveable characters, gorgeous lands one can get lost in, and each story has a theme that one can take to heart and apply to their own selves.

Meyers Briggs: INFJ

Naval service runs in my family! My wife and I are both serving active-duty in the U.S. Navy, and I am a fourth generation Sailor, starting with my great grandfather who was in Pearl Harbor when it was attacked. 

I do various graphic design jobs for Katie and I love being able to play a part in her creation.

I absolutely love Katie's books because I get to feel a sense of ownership and connection to the fantastic world that Katie has created.
