Katherine Tegen started writing stories when she was nine years old. She also wrote and printed a newspaper called "The Nutkin News" on a little printing press. She always knew she wanted to do something in publishing. After graduating from Middlebury College, she had several different publishing jobs, but she knew she had found her niche when she got a job as an editorial assistant at Harper & Row Junior Books.
Katherine still loves to write stories, and she still works in publishing. She lives with her family in New York City.
