Katie Willard Book and Novel

Katie Willard - Author


Katie Willard was born in Western Massachusetts and educated at Dartmouth College, where she blissfully studied everything, but especially English literature. After Dartmouth, she went to Harvard Law School for the less-than-sound reason that she got in. She practiced law in Boston for a few years until the best job in the world - being a stay-at-home mom to her daughter Zoe - came along.

An avid life-long reader, Katie dreamed of being a writer in the same way that a person who sings in the shower dreams of appearing on Broadway. She surprised herself when she enrolled in a writers' workshop and started singing outside the shower, so to speak. She wrote her first novel, Raising Hope, during the course of the workshop.

Katie lives in Sudbury, Massachusetts with her husband and daughter, where she enjoys tending her child, her garden and her writing.
