Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She loves to write romances that make her readers laugh, cry, and swoon (preferably in that order). She’s rarely found without a cup of tea nearby, and she’s more than a little obsessed with tiny plants. Katia is proudly bisexual and has a passion for writing about love in all its forms.
But wait there's more ! Keep scrolling for ten fun facts.
Important note: as a white author and business owner, I recognize that racism and white supremacy afford me a position of privilege in this industry. The romance community, both personal and professional, is not exempt from the impact of racism, and I have a role to play in challenging that impact in myself, my business, and my surroundings through sustained and concrete action.
I've developed my Anti-Racist Business Plan to address this and hold myself accountable for creating change that allows people of all races to receive opportunities, representation, and respect in this genre and its community.
SO YOU WANT TO GET TO KNOW ME...
Well, my friend, you've come to the right place. I'm Katia Rose, and I've got a handy dandy little list of fun facts about me right here.
I read a romance novel for the first time because I had food poisoning in Cambodia. That was back in 2016. It's a long story. Hit me with an email, and I'll be happy to give you the deets.
I've been a published indie romance author since 2017, and I'm in LOOOVE with the romance community. Hanging out with other romance fans is my favourite thing.
I'm a certified pole dance instructor. When I'm not writing, you can usually find me on a pole.
I'm obsessed with tea. I can never have enough. NEVER. I'm down to try any kind, but I'm especially hooked on everything David's Tea creates.
I spent pretty much the whole first half of my twenties backpacking (and saving up to backpack). I've been to over thirty countries!
I'm Canadian. The Great White North is home for me.
I have an amaaaaazing girlfriend who lives in New York City (if you see me mentioning 'the GF' around social media, that's who I'm talking about). Long distance is tough, but we make it work!
I love tiny plants like cacti and succulents, but I am far from the world's best plant mom.
I have seven piercings and a few tattoos, and I'm aiming to get a few more.
If you want to win my eternal admiration, drop an obscure Lord of the Rings reference into a conversation with me.
I'd love to know more about YOU! My favourite way to connect with readers is a community I started called Club Katia. I'm also on Instagram way too much, and you can find info on getting in touch with me directly on my contact page. Reader emails are my favourite things! Like please, spam me with your thoughts and dreams.
Hope to hear from you soon!
