My name is Kaylee. This is my story.
When I was young and people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was always the same: "Librarian Spy." I loved books and I loved adventure, so it only made sense that under the guise of friendly local librarian I’d be a secret agent, saving the world one mission at a time.
But as children are wont to do, I grew up. I enrolled at Miami University and declared a degree in English Literature. I read Ender’s Game, then read it again, and added a Sociology degree to the mix. After graduating I moved to Boston and got certified in Copyediting from Emerson University. I read like it was my job and by then, it was!
I may not be a librarian and I’m certainly no spy, but I’m still lucky enough to be doing what I’ve loved from the very beginning. The only difference is, now I get to save the world one book at a time.
Note: I am actively seeking to build my client list in the genres of sci-fi, fantasy, speculative fiction, middle grade, young adult, and new adult. I'm particularly interested in steampunk, coming-of-age, and social commentary, and I am diversity-friendly.
