Born and raised in a small town in Northern California, I moved to North Dakota in 2011 to attend college as an English Major focusing on British Literature, where I learned how to be an adult. There is something about moving halfway across the country by yourself and not knowing anyone that makes you appreciate the meaning of home. I moved back home in 2017, where my love of books and reading has flourished. I’ve been an avid reader since a young age. The written word has always brought such peace to my life; books and stories have always been the best companions. My name is Katy, and I am a reader.
