Passionate about reading and stories, Katie Shepard's dream was to make those things a part of her career and to one day publish books — her own and others! That dream was fulfilled with the completion of her first collaborative book project: Essex, New York Architecture: A Doodler's Field Guide. Her dream continues with more books to come.
She also enjoys discovering more about her home while writing and editing for the Essex on Lake Champlain Blog (essexonlakechamplain.com). Katie graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh in 2011 where she studied English literature, philosophy, and Asian studies.
