Katie Gutierrez believes that a well-told story can transcend what a reader “knows” to be real about the world—and thus change the world for that reader. With a BA in English and philosophy from Southwestern University, and an MFA in fiction from Texas State University, she has edited more than 50 fiction and non-fiction books by emerging and established writers.
Katie counts herself blessed to have learned under such writers as Tim O’Brien, Tom Grimes, Debra Monroe, Nelly Rosario, and ZZ Packer, among others. She has co-written numerous books with RTC, including"#JUMP", with Corey Blake and Annie Hart, and four books in the ORP Library including "Meltdown" and the companion comic "Melting Down", and "An Unlikely Trust" and the comic "Alina's Story", all with Dr. Jeff Krukar and James G. Balestrieri. Katie has contributed to or been profiled in People, Hispanic Executive magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Community Impact Newspaper, Narrative magazine, and more.
She can’t believe she’s lucky enough to do what she loves every day.
