Hi there, I m Kate.I live in Nashville, Tennessee where I love to read, write and learn with my family.I used to practice medicine as an obstetrician gynecologist, and I loved delivering babies and walking alongside women as an advocate of maternal health.I ve also been a writer, and after my father died in 2012, I was going through old family pictures, and I decided to tell a story inspired by my Sicilian family, so I wrote a book for middle grade readers called Snow in Sicily.My husband and I have four amazing kids, so lately I ve been working on children s picture books My first one is called Bartleby Any proceeds from my creative projects go to a non profit that my husband and I founded in 2011 called Remember Me Mission.Now I work at home educating my kids, and so far I haven t found a career that I ve enjoyedI love sharing the books we re reading and the things we re learning with a broader audience in hopes that others can use some of the nuggets I m discovering along the way.My husband and I started using the phrase scuola a casa early on before we even started homeschooling, and it kind of stuck So, we still call it that, and I really do believe that scuola is for anyone, any age, anywhere Scuola is all around us as long as we re paying attention and being curious human beans credit to Roald Dahl.
