I lifted this from a post on Query Tracker by 17 year old author Kate Coursey. I met Kate at WIFYR this year. She is wise for her years.
“Age is a statistic. Writing is a craft. At the end of the day, what counts are the words you put on the page, not the number on the birth certificate.”
Kate Coursey lives and writes in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her debut novel, The Hamsa’s Song, won a Gold Medal in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards and is currently undergoing revisions at Scholastic Press. She writes mainly YA fantasy fiction. In her spare time Kate plays competitive soccer, attends West High School, and eats copious amounts of junk food.
