CSK began writing with a career in mind in middle school, which she pursued by founding the Creative Writing Club at her high school. This built a strong foundation for a determined, "grab the bull by the horns" spirit that helps her handle the ups and downs of a writing career well.
From 2006-2010, CSK attended Mills College, a highly prestigious, strictly women's college in the Bay Area that is well known for its English program. Her career was aided by the literature, poetry, journalism, art, and creative writing classes she took.
For literature she wrote many long academic essays, in each creating a powerful thesis and supporting comments before delivering a firm conclusion. In poetry and art courses she learned how to handle and deliver a good critique and refine her work to its best. Journalism and creative writing courses expanded her knowledge of writing, grammar, punctuation, revision, how to keep to a deadline, and styles and methods of writing fiction and non-fiction for various audiences.
For one year she wrote hard news reports for The Campanil newspaper. Her reports covered multiple genres, including crime, environment, and education, and were researched via telephone, video, and in-person. Outside the writing field, CSK worked as an office assistant on campus and as Level I and II Librarian for the F.W. Olin Library.
After college CSK began international travels to India. From winter 2012 to spring 2013, she traveled in India with a spiritual speaker and artist. Her job was to assist in formatting and editing a coffee table art book.
Her volunteer work, assisting in the distribution of spiritual literature, keeps her broadminded and assists her in writing spiritual articles that are not biased and awkward but eloquent, informative, and interesting. Her travel experiences make her a prime candidate for travel writing, which slides easily from her fingers because she loves to share stories.
CSK keeps up with the entertainment world through the Internet, newspapers, and magazines. Her experiences meeting people and viewing entertainment, both in the East and West, give her a different perspective than most. She likes to explore the unasked questions. She writes mostly on artists and musicians, though she loves movies and has a lot to say about them, too.
CSK is also experienced in writing opinion articles, which she does for another freelance website.
Research is not only a must for CSK but it is also enjoyable. She prides herself in turning out quality work and meeting tight deadlines. She researches, asks questions, and then writes until the work is done, while remaining open to changes or inspiration.
Currently she works for two other paid-to-write websites. She has an as-of-yet-unpublished collection of poetry and is revising a novel. Her first fiction piece was published in 2013 in the 2013 Flash in the Attic Flash Fiction Anthology.
