Katie Avery was born and raised in Upstate New York, in a town so small that it doesn’t have its own post office or library. From a young age, she escaped her town by imagining far-off worlds. The first story Katie ever wrote, at age seven, was Star Wars fan-fiction. She continued to write short stories through college at Colgate University, where she majored in Creative Writing. Even though she wasn’t allowed to watch most TV growing up, she knew that’s what she wanted to do with her life. So, while catching up on a quarter-life’s worth of TV, Katie received her MFA from USC’s Writing for Screen & Television program and worked as a writers’ PA. Following the Workshop, Katie was staffed on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix).
