meet Katya, writer & overall dog nut
I am a writer, storyteller, dog trainer, and animal person. I write books, essays, articles, and blog posts. My work has been featured in Time Out New York, NY Theatre Review, The Bark, Rover, Together Magazine, Girlie Girl Army, Our Hen House, and Adopt-a-Pet.com. I recently sold a TV pilot to Disney, and I run Unsheltered Productions, a production company in Austin, TX, along with my husband. My one-woman show, I'm Sorry, enjoyed a two-year run of sold out performances in Los Angeles and New York City. My blog "The Daily Lastima" was lauded for its empathy-driven content. I've worked in the nonprofit sector for over a decade, and I am also a recovering actress.
