About me as an author

Kate Ready loves lists. So here's one: Abu Dhabi native, Coloradan, Berkeley grad, Camino de Santiago pilgrim, writer, budget traveller. She dreams of being a journalist, a novelist, a French woman, and a transient cloud. She prays to Maya Angelou and rereads to "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" periodically. Oh, and she has webbed toes. No, this does not make her swim faster.

Social media



I studied English Literature at UC Berkeley.

Work experience

I have worked as a restaurant server, administrative assistant, and in Publishing.

Travel experience

I love traveling! I've been to Scotland, Australia, the Middle East, Hawaii, but never to Europe. So I would love to see France and improve my language abilities.
