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 glitter 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!

Myers Briggs: ISTJ-T / Enneagram 3

I was married in Las Vegas by Elvis. 

I format the books, upload them to the various retailers, and help share them with people who will love them!

My favorite part of working with KCW is the people.  Everyone is so supportive, kind, and wonderful! We have such a great team dynamic.  Getting to see how books can impact such a wide variety of people's lives is pretty great, too.

Enneagram type 2 - the helper. 

I love to craft and paint! 

I am a Facebook moderator for the network series Facebook page and  a backup moderator for Gemma on the health and happiness society page. 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.

Enneagram 2

I read upwards of 300 books a year for fun.

I help Katie keep the wheels going on the Health and Happiness Society Facebook groups 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.

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: 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 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!

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.
