About Quills and Crystals


I’m Katie.  It’s nice to meet you!

Sometimes I feel too much and say too little, and that’s when I write. It’s the best kind medicine and the best kind of magic.

New books, new friends, new places: they all have a story to tell, as long as we have the heart to listen. We explore the world through books, travel, and art. We create so that our own stories can be heard. We love others by being kind and showing up for social justice. Put simply: we think the power of storytelling can change the world.

Reading and traveling are two of my absolute favorite things to do–and they have opened my heart and mind in ways I never expected. Here, I’ll be sharing my latest adventures (literary and otherwise), and I’d love to hear about yours.

Peace may begin with empathy, but that’s not where it ends. I’ll also be writing about social justice and resistance. After all, art is political, and justice is love in action.

Ready? Let’s go.
