About

Katharine SchellmanMy name is Katharine, and some of the people I know call me that. (People named Katharine tend to collect nicknames.)

I tell stories. For five years that included a lot of time onstage. These days my stories are more likely to be written down rather than performed, though I do still dance whenever possible.

(Glimpses of my past life as a performer here, here, and here, for the curious.)

I graduated with a BA from the College of William & Mary in Virginia, lived in Philadelphia and the DC area, and have had seven addresses in the last six years.

I read more genres than I know what to do with, but you’re most likely to find me writing speculative fiction, historical mysteries, and assorted modern ramblings. (That includes a bit of nonfiction as well.)

I drink far more tea than any one person should,Β have kept a journal since I was five years old, am occasionally a morning person, and firmlyΒ believe in the Oxford comma.

You can follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest, or drop me a line if you want to get in touch.

And be sure to check out what’s going on in my journal!
