The youngest of six children, Katie Hayoz grew up in Wisconsin, USA just blocks from the shore of Lake Michigan. She now lives by Lake Leman in Geneva, Switzerland, with her Swiss husband, their two daughters, and two fuzzy cats.
Katie has been an avid reader of YA fiction for years. While she has a penchant for the paranormal, she devours a range of books -- along with popcorn and black licorice. She consumes all three in large quantities.
Her love of the written word extends beyond reading and writing for herself. She has served on the Geneva Writers’ Group steering committee for ten years where she regularly organizes literary events from workshops to readings to panels.
