Hi, my name is Kaitlyn Leann Sanchez.
I am a mom, wife, literary agent at Red Fox Literary, middle school math teacher, and picture book author.
I’m also the co-creator and co-host of the Spring Fling Kidlit Contest, creator and co-host of the Kidlit Fall Writing Frenzy Contest, and one of the hosts along with my critique group 6 Ladies and a MANuscript, of Kidlit Zombie Week.
In my free time, I love to play soccer, binge-watch shows on Hulu, and, of course, read. My favorite stories are historical fiction; short stories are my jam. I’ve recently gotten into dramas, fantasies, mysteries, and romances. And of course, I LOVE picture books! Especially when my husband, daughter, and I all cozy up and read together.
My blog on this website consists of my original pieces, reviews, contests, and author interviews!
