Kaitlin H Powell has been writing for as long as she can remember. Ever since she learned how to read, she knew that she would be a writer one day. She self-published her first novel at the age of seventeen and has since dedicated her time to writing novels that actually should see the light of day. Gifted is her YA Fantasy debut.

She lives in Boise with her ever-expanding library of books and her leopard gecko, Ferguson. When she is not writing or reading, she can be found with friends, playing volleyball, or listening to music.

Kaitlin graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing Management with an Emphasis in Professional Sales at Cal Poly Pomona and played four years of collegiate volleyball.
