About the Author
Writing under the pseudonym of Katorah Kenway, or Katorah K, she grew up with a love of books from the time she was ten years old when a teacher (and family friend) introduced her to the words of Beverly Cleary. From that point forward she read everything she could get her hands on for both enjoyment and knowledge.
Currently pursuing her second chance at life with the help of friends from around the world, she chose to turn her love of books into a new hobby. With her laptop practically glued to her legs, she’s spent the past couple of years pounding on the keys to create numerous story lines. Finally picking one whose characters spoke to her on a personal level, the Ackerman Security Series was born. The characters in the book are constantly in her mind telling her what they want to do and what direction the series should go.
In her spare time she likes to read, write, and research. A multi-tasker, she always has something new and different going on. While she has always enjoyed a wide range of musical genre, she’s recently discovering there is a whole new set of tunes out there and has been exploring those through the world of YouTube.
While she likes to keep her family life private, hence the pseudonym, she wants to acknowledge that her child has given her the strength and courage to pursue her writing career along with the close knit group of friends she has from around the world.
Why did she choose a smiling latte for her first logo pic? Because she is addicted to the soul-warming drink and her philosophy in life is no matter what bumps you run into, no matter what hurdles you have to cross, keep smiling. It’ll make you feel better and maybe bring a smile to someone else’s face in the world which is just one step closer to happiness all around.
