This picture was taken on Cape Cod. My books are in the bag! Reading on the beach at sunset is wonderful!

I’m Katie, and I’m so glad you’re here!

As a little girl, I loved to read by flashlight. And I have always written stories and poems. I have several completed children’s picturebook manuscripts and am in a SCBWI critique group. I am currently querying agents. 

I studied English at the University of Virginia and fell in love with young adult literature (and my future husband!) when I was at William & Mary learning to become a secondary English teacher. Fourteen years, three teaching jobs, one baby boy, and two faculty positions later, I am happily an assistant professor of literacy at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania. I am also a trained reading specialist. 

I started this blog to to share my ideas about writing and literacy; to review contemporary children’s, middle grades, and young adult literature for teachers and parents; to review professional books for teachers; and to share teaching ideas and resources for parents and teachers. Please follow me on Twitter @KCapLiteracy!


  1. Katie! Was glad to find your site. I was wondering how I might submit a book for your review? I see that you reviewed Sunny Side Up by Jenni Holm. She had posted a nice review about our book that you can see on her blog page. I was wondering if you would consider reviewing our book that was just released in print? Thanks for considering it, you can e-mail me at rcruz [at] puppyducks [dot] com – Regards,

  2. Hey! Sorry I didn’t get this out sooner. Had been dealing with my son who had strep throat. Sending this out in a few! Thanks ever so much! How you doing? Talk soon hopefully!
