Kaitlin has always loved books and loved to read.
As a young girl growing up on the New Jersey shore (yes, she is a Jersey Girl and proud of it) she spent hours and hours reading at the beach, reading out on the front porch, and reading in her bedroom very late at night when she was supposed to be sleeping. She would walk to the little public library in town and choose books as if they were delicious chocolates in a candy store.
Although Kaitlin still spends a good portion of the year on the east coast, she now lives in sunny Southern California with her family, where she is busy writing her next novel!
