My name is Katherine Welsh, and I'm the one behind kat.prettyposies.com. I'm 21 years old and live in Nashua, New Hampshire. I generally identify myself as a writer, but since I'm just starting out, I do other things to actually support myself and my various hobbies. I work full time at my local Borders, and occasionally do some freelance copyediting. I'm a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! and sometimes I sell some crafts at craft fairs.
I grew up in a small town in Connecticut, and attended Simon's Rock College in Great Barrington, MA. I graduated with my B.A. in Literary Studies in May 2002. I enjoyed college, and I'm planning to start grad school soon.
I have way too many hobbies for my own good. First of all, I love to read. Working in a bookstore, I see tons of books I want to read every day, and can't possibly keep up with them all. But I try. As mentioned above, I also write. So far, I've been published in Knitty as well as my college's lit mag, and I am working toward being able to support myself by writing. I love crafts, especially needlework, and knit virtually every day and cross stitch when I get in the mood. My newest crafting pursuit is rubber stamping. I am interested in learning to spin, quilt, and do pretty much any other crafts. I love to cook and bake from scratch. History and genealogy fascinate me. I like computer strategy games, as long as there isn't too much fighting. (That's just not so interesting.) And, obviously, I like to spend time online.
