Katie Lea Yates is a wife, mother of two, and storyteller. Her earliest memories of story-telling stretch back to sleepovers in elementary school, where she’d tell stories to her friends before they went to sleep. She started writing poetry in middle school, and graduated to writing novels as an adult. The Provider (the first book in a Young Adult Fantasy trilogy) is the first novel that she actually submitted for publication. She was born in Texas, raised by parents with big hearts and slightly warped senses of humor. She now resides in Colorado with her husband, daughters, and one slightly psychotic cat. Her hobbies include traveling, spending time with friends and her ever-growing family, reading, correcting people on the pronunciation of her middle name (it’s “Lee”), and trying to understand the thousands of people near her who bleed Bronco blue-and-orange.

I've learned how to jump into pictures and become other people in some alternate reality. I've learned how to be a wife, a ruler, a Provider.
Now, I'm back in the real world. I'm legally an adult, and I'm officially on the run. Now, I have to learn a whole new set of tricks.
I have to learn how to make it on my own. I have to find my missing roommate. I have to find a way to stop an unexpected enemy from killing off the people who share my talent.
And, this time, there's no safety net...
Finishing eighth grade and getting ready for high school is hard enough. Finding out that you can jump into the pictures you've drawn and become ruler of thousands of people makes it just a tiny bit tougher. Thankfully, I'm not alone. There's a whole group of us. They're very cool, and I love living with them. But it seems that I brought back a little more than my memories when I jumped into that first drawing-now I'm able to create things, or bring things from somewhere else, or . . . well, it's complicated. And unfortunately, somebody might want us all dead.
