I am Katie Leas from Kansas City, Missouri.

Over the years I’ve tried on a lot of “outfits:” shy and quiet new girl, band geek, party girl, workaholic, runner, and cool girl. For as long as I can remember, I’ve crafted stories – out loud, in my head, in print. Some of them aren’t the stories we talk about; they’re the stories we use to fill in the gaps when we’re afraid to speak up and connect.
