About Me

As a writer, my mission is communicating hope and encouragement to help individuals become their best selves–and make their best contributions to the larger world.  

I’m katherine swarts

  • I am a Christian writer who believes in the value of every person.
  • I am an experienced professional with dozens of published articles and other credits.
  • I am active in church groups, NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness), the Houston SPCA, and other organizations working to bring hope to the struggling.
  • I am an avid reader, a music lover, a poet, and a birdwatcher.

There’s more to good writing than flawless spelling and knowing the rules of grammar. I think I can speak for your favorite authors–indeed, for all successful writers–by testifying that effectively putting ideas into written form requires imagination, a feel for smooth-flowing language, and an understanding of what readers really want. Plus hard work, and even willingness to experience human empathy at the deep-pain level.

Not everyone is made to be a good author, but anyone can be an eager learner. If you want to talk about the writing business or about the book you wish someone would write, I’d be delighted to have you join my network!
