Katherine C.

Where do you live and where do you call home?
Chicago. I’ve moved around a lot, but Chicago is the first place I’ve lived for more than 4 years so it wins the title of “home.”

How do you make money?
I don’t. I recently left a job in marketing for a large Architecture firm to stay at home with my two daughters (I’m a proud member of the two under two club). Although I have a masters in Interior Design and experience in advertising/marketing and graphic design… I now get paid in hugs. But someday soon I hope to start my own freelance work and do more with design projects on the side.

What book(s) are you ashamed to have read AND loved?
Ugh. The Twilight series. Or, excuse me, saga? Guilty as charged.

Do you have an e-reader? Why or why not?
No! Never! That’s fine if you have one. I hear they’re great for travel. But I’ve sworn I will never own an e-reader. I just can’t part with the real thing.. the pages, the smell, the design, I could go on…

What activities did you do in high school?
None. Not my thing.

Your life’s motto
Everything happens for a reason.

Who knows you best?
My husband and daughters… oh, and the other “Katherines” of course. You don’t get through 4 years of college and 10 years of friendship without sharing a thing or two.

The greatest television show of all time
Buffy the Vampire Slayer! That’s right, you heard me.

Name something on your bucket list
I would love to go to New Zealand someday.

Favorite book series
The Flavia De Luce Chronicles. If you haven’t read them, read them now! You’ll be charmed by the main character… an 11-year-old chemist with an active imagination and talent for finding trouble.
