As a freelance journalist, Katie has written for The Boston Globe, The Quincy Patriot Ledger, The Brookline Tab, Brookline Magazine, and Gastronomica Magazine, specializing in feature stories about people, community, and culture. (See the sidebar for a smattering of these.) Her long-form magazine piece on Marshmallow Fluff was chosen for inclusion in the Best Food Writing 2009 anthology and reviewed on the Utne Reader literature blog. She also contributed several entries to the Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets.
Previously, Katie worked as a full-time reporter for Community News Corporation (now a division of Gatehouse Media), covering the suburban communities of Wayland and Weston, Massachusetts. She also worked as a State House correspondent, covering Massachusetts state government for the Daily News Transcript. Her stories have been re-printed in The New York Times, The Boston Herald, MetroWest Daily News, and The Needham Times.
Katie also writes her own performance pieces. These include her storytelling pieces as well as autobiographical works she has performed with the queer-themed productions Ten Tiny Shows, Three-Way and The Nitty Gritty Show – which she created and produced with Erica Berman in 2011. Katie’s 10-minute play, “The Bacon Accords,” was selected for Girl Play, a lesbian playreading festival hosted by the Women’s Theatre Project in Ft. Lauderdale.
