Katie Cotugno went to Catholic school for thirteen years which makes her, as an adult, both extremely superstitious and prone to crushes on boys wearing blazers. She routinely finds herself talking about the romantic endeavors of characters on TV shows as if they actually exist in the world.
Katie is a 2011 Pushcart Prize nominee whose work has appeared in Mississippi Review, Iowa Review, and Argestes, among other literary magazines, as well as on Nerve.com. She lives in Boston with her husband, Tom. How to Love is her first novel.
