about kate

We're here to create! I believe that you have a purpose & gift to share with the world and this blog exists as a reminder of the fact; to cheer you on with encouraging posts, inspirational interviews, and motivational stories, and better equip you to stay strong as you run faster and faster with that pen, paintbrush, light-saber, or other preferred weapon of mass construction. there's never been a better time to bless the world with your dream - realized!

There's a beautiful phrase: raison d'ĂȘtre. and it means "the most important reason or purpose for someone or something's existence." i have a raison d'ĂȘtre, and you do to. I believe we all have an immeasurably meaningful reason for being, and part of that reason is creating a better and more beautiful world, by sharing our talents, gifts, and dreams. 

Here To Create is all about forging a path of creative wellbeing. You can expect inspiring weekly posts about creative, emotional, and spiritual wellness, indie authoring and entrepreneurship, insightful interviews, and wisdom and advice shared from my own trail notes as I pursue my own dreams of writing stories and traveling the world.

When I'm not creating here, you can find me tucked away in the Vermont mountains writing my series The Blood Race, chatting with my Patreon community, doing volunteer work for a non-profit i co-founded called Blue Freedom (we made a film, guys, check it out!), or planning our next adventure with my US Airman husband. if you're curious about my series, click either of the covers below, or, click here and I'll send you the first 9 chapter of book one. (just bc i think you're cool).

  5. Hello, Kate. I recently wrote a review of "The Blood Race" over at my blog. I'm not sure if you'd be interested to see it or not, but I figured I'd link it here for you.
    Have a wonderful day! <3

  7. Absolutely loved the interplay between the different characters, and each richly contributing to crucial life themes we all must journey in... beliefs, which ones & in whom; sacrafice, what that looks like for me & am I willing as I consider the cost; trust, can I overcome my past with its issues to give it, etc. etc. Totally awesome & stimulating as I continue to grow & evaluate my own progress. Thank You!
