Katie Davis is the author/illustrator of over a dozen books for children and teens from Harcourt, Inc., Simon and Schuster, and HarperCollins, among others. She self-published How to Write a Children's Book and How to Promote Your Children's Book, both debuting at #1 on Amazon. All told, her books have sold over 820,400 copies worldwide.
Because Katie’s secret superpower is her ability to teach writers about writing, tech, and marketing, she created digital courses and products for writers such as How to Create Your Author Platform (and Market Your Books without Being Pushy), Video Idiot Boot Camp, and Launch Your Book Blueprint. She also co-created Picture Book Summit, the largest and first live online conference of its kind.
Katie’s first podcast was an interview show and began in 2010. Her second is Writing for Children, full of bite-sized, craft oriented lessons. As a regular guest on WTNH, Katie recommended children’s books for years, and has appeared on the TEDx stage.
Katie has been honored to speak everywhere from a maximum security prison, to elementary schools, to university level, including UCONN and Yale, and has keynoted conferences and fundraising galas.
Using her now not-so-secret superpower allowed Katie to take over the 49-year-old Institute of Children’s Literature and its sister school, the Institute for Writers, where, as of this writing, over 470,027 people have taken college level writing courses and learned to write for both children and adults.
