Short biography
Katie Alvord wrote her first novel at age 11. Though that work remains unpublished, a number of her nonfiction articles -- on nature, environment, food, wine, health, business, and travel -- have appeared in periodicals such as the Boston Globe, E Magazine, Keweenaw Now, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, Sonoma Business, Utne Reader, Wild Earth, Wine Country, and others. She has also published poetry and short prose in west coast literary periodicals. Best known as the author of Divorce Your Car!, she is a long-term advocate of transportation reform and has worked with several environmental non-profit groups. Forays into teaching, speaking, grantwriting and library work round out her resume. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from UC Davis and a Master’s in Library and Information Studies from UC Berkeley. Born in San Francisco, she currently lives in Michigan.
