Katy Read,  writer 

   Welcome, reader!

As my name implies, I am in the printed-word business. I write articles, essays and book reviews on culture, psychology, personal finance, family, attention management and whatever else I and my editors find of mutual interest. My work has appeared in Salon, More, Brain Child, Real Simple, AARP The Magazine, Working Mother, Parents, River Teeth, Brevity, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times and many other outstanding publications. Before becoming a freelance writer I was a newspaper staff writer, most recently at the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
