Katie Duke

A graduate of Florida State University and Vermont Law School, Katie Joy Duke practiced social justice law for nine years before becoming a writer, life coach, and mom. Katie has always processed her dreams, fears, and life experiences through the written word. When her daughter Poppy was stillborn in 2015, she turned straight to the page. Katie started blogging in 2016 to process her grief and found solace and meaning in the community that followed her journey. Ms. Duke lives north of Seattle with her husband, daughter, and scruffy dog Wilson. She accesses power with yoga, serenity through meditation, and joy through song and dance. She believes that laughter is the best medicine, and vulnerability is her superpower. She was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer on March 18, 2022, and looks forward to writing her next memoir about her healing and growth process through cancer treatment.
