After facilitating weekly groups in Boise for nearly a decade, she's packing up and taking her passion to the Wood River Valley where she is already organizing 2013 weekly writing groups. Kate is a driving force for writers of all ages, writing all genres; because, as she maintains...writers often need other writers. "Besides, it's part of who I am and I'm excited about my new ventures!" Kate has taught The Art of Writing Memoir for Community Ed through the Boise School District as well as for the Boise Public Library!

In addition, Kate has presented at numerous writing conferences throughout California and Idaho and she has helped many writers complete books for publication.

Kate began her storytelling career at age six during a live broadcast of "The Mayor Art Show" in San Francisco, CA. She doesn't remember how she ended up as a contestant but suspects her father, John D. Riley, had something to do with it. Later she attended Antioch University Santa Barbara and it was there she realized her passion for writing. Life hasn't been the same since.
HAPPY WRITING IN 2013!!!
