Wise at Any Age: A handbook for cultivating wisdom
Kaitlyn's first published book, Wise at Any Age was a pure passion project of writing, illustration, & design.
Basically she was 25, not yet published despite that being something she'd wanted since she was three, and so she figured out how to publish a book on her own. An English professor, an aspiring book agent, and her dad all helped with editing. Her mum helped by actually buying a lot of copies (and sharing tears of joy when Kait got her first print proof in the post!)
Mostly, she still thinks this was pretty awesome, although she's learned a LOT since then and would change the bit about meditation.
Friends We Haven't Met
Friends We Haven't Met is the only one of a half dozen fiction manuscripts that Kait has published. Thanks to a crowdfunding campaign, she was able to hire an editor and fund a small print run. This simple book tells the tale of six strangers living in a block of flats in Wimbledon, their lives & struggles unnoticed between them until they begin to intertwine. Kaitlyn is honestly deeply embarrassed about this book as she has a much greater awareness now than she did when she wrote it, but people say nice thing about it, so it can't be as terrible as she thinks.
