Katie Orphan was born and raised in Reno, NV, and eventually made her way to Los Angeles via Spokane, WA, where she earned her B.A. from Whitworth University and Sheffield, UK, where she earned her M.A. from the University of Sheffield. She managed the Last Bookstore, located in downtown Los Angeles, for a decade. She now owns her own business, Orphan Books, Inc., and if you ever need help putting together a home library, set/prop library, or a bookstore, she’s your gal. Her writing can be found on LitHub and the Los Angeles Review of Books, and interviews with her can be found in publications such as the New York Times and Open Skies magazine, as well as with Los Angeles’s CBS, WB, and NBC affiliates.
