My name is Katie Charles and I began writing young adult romance when I was sixteen. I attended a local California high school and spend most of my time in the band room, and now I am a student at Vanguard University. I play four types of instruments: baritone saxophone, alto saxophone, guitar and piano. I spend any spare time I have either reading or writing with music playing in the background. I barely watch TV, mainly because I get angry at the actors or animators over how poor of a job was done. So I do my best to write things the way they should have happened.
