My name is Katelin Marie Ballinger and I was born in San Diego, California in 1997. At the age of eight, my family and I moved to New Mexico. Pretty much my whole life I'd been home schooled, the only years I was really in a normal, public school was the third grade and through half of the fourth grade. In the beginning of my Junior year in high school I entered a charter school in my town and am still going there. I've always been different than other people and I've always had a very difficult time making friends.
Being home schooled was an amazing thing for me personally. Ever since a young age I've enjoyed writing and the fact that I had so much free time while I was home schooled really helped me to create my books.
In the Spring of 2010 my writing really took a large leap; I had a dream and I decided to take the idea from the dream and mix it with my passion for writing. In the late summer of 2010, I had finished my first book in the book saga "Ever-Presence." I decided to share my ideas with the world and that's how I got here! The publications of the Ever-Presence Series on Smashwords is as follows:
Book 1: The In-between Stage- 07/03/2012
Book 2: The Fool's Poem- 08/04/2012
Book 3: Delirium- 09/24/2012
Book 4: Blood Lust- 10/23/2012
Book 5: Insomnia- 06/15/2013
Book 6: Indomitable Thirst- 09/27/2014
In Fall of 2014, I began to write the seventh book in the series, "Eleutheromania."
I have now officially entered my Senior year of high school and I know that this year will be very enervating and time consuming, even more so than last year was. Despite my busy schedule I am still finding time to write my books and keep up with my book series!
If you guys have any questions or comments I really love hearing people's opinions on my books! So email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll email you back! Also, thank you to all of the people who 'like' my books and leave comments on them! It means the world to me! Thank you so much! :)

Another fun read. I have no complaints about the storyline, it is crafted quite well. I hesitate to mention any complaints as the author is so young and the books are free but I would suggest a little editing for spelling, homophones (brake vs break) and the use of proper tenses (pat vs patted). With the proper editing this series could easily be sold.
