About the Author Katie Reed

Katie has always been a fan of fantasy. As a child, she fell in love with Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings books and movies. She loves wizards like Gandalf and Dumbledore who subtly teach lessons and are good role models for the younger characters. She also wanted her wizard to have a sidekick. A lizard came to mind quickly because it rhymed with wizard!  

Katie worked in after school programs for 10 years, and then she worked in a public school reading intervention program for 2 years. In that time, she learned how to help children deal with their emotions and problems every day, and learned to see children’s perspectives on things that sometimes adults overlook or don’t think are a big deal. She has taken these lessons and put them into her books. Katie’s main passion is giving children a love for reading. When she had her son, she wanted to stay home with him, and used her amazing reading background with children to write children’s books!
Her book series Wizard and the Lizard, so far consists of two books. The first released in October 2019, and her newest release, Wizard and the Wizard: Wacky Weather will be available in a couple of weeks. Katie says that the message of the story is relevant to what is going on today.
