All Ion Jacobs ever wanted was to be normal. But when you’re capable of killing with your very thoughts, it’s hard to blend in with the crowd.
Running from his past and living in fear of being discovered, Ion knows he will never be an average college student. But when Hawk, the beautiful, mysterious girl next door unearths his darkest secret, Ion’s life is flipped upside-down. He’s shocked to discover a whole world of people just like him -- a world in another dimension, where things like levitation, shape-shifting, and immortality are not only possible… they’re normal.
Forced to keep more secrets than ever before, Ion struggles to control his powers in the real world while commuting between realms -- until his arch enemy starts a fight he can’t escape. Now he has sealed the fate of the Dimension, severing their connection to the real world, and locking himself inside forever. But a deadly threat hidden in plain sight may cost Ion more than just his freedom -- it may cost him his life.

If the characters of The Blood Race trilogy could jump into any other fictional world, where would they go? Oh, hands down Narnia. Because that’s where I’m trying to “jump into” every day of the week, yo. I’m still checking those closets.
#5 JUST DO IT. so many of us spend a heck of a lot of time, debating about whether we should write a book, thinking about how we would write it, wondering if we’re good enough, or psychoanalyzing every single detail.
"Worlds Beneath is a captivating novel that pulls the reader in from the first page."
CAN I JUST GUSH ABOUT THIS GORGEOUS COVER??? I MEAN. LOOK AT IT.
Kate: "...we are NOT the things that have happened to us. We are not our pasts. Letting go is hard, but one of the most important things you will ever do."
I’m also a surfer, karate enthusiast, and military wife.
Each time I sit down at the desk in the morning with my cup of coffee, I don't have a map or a plan, or a binder full of notes...
"The ending, in typical Kate style, KILLED ME, and I am already counting down the days until Book 3 comes into the world."
"It's deep. It's full of powerful themes, breathtakingly complex characters, and intense twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat. If you want something emotional, gritty, fantastical, fast-paced, and theme-focused, I highly recommend The Blood Race!"
Be the lighthouse on the cold and craggy isle, flickering vanilla beams into the billows of the storm.
"Kate has a way with describing scenes that makes one feel like they’re in it without being too wordy."
Write about the things that make your soul hum.
"The plot is brilliantly woven and full of vibrant, real characters with wonderful depth and raw emotion. Amid the tense action, thought-provoking dialogue and text often had me slowing down to savor the book."
The sheer joy I get when I sit down in the morning with a cup of coffee to write is immeasurable. And that’s my favorite part of writing.
My writing zone at the moment is being lost in my head in my cozy, colorfully painted office, with coffee and a soundtrack of Vermont rainfall pattering against my window.
"There were so many unique and such fierce characters. I especially loved Icarus, Hawk, and Fin. They had so much depth! I loved watching the growth and maturity that happens in this novel..."
"The character development, the fascinating originality of the Dimension, the Christian allegory woven through, it was really good."
"The concept is completely original and you're immediately drawn in and enthralled by the story. I started reading it and I just could not put it down!"
