Hi! I’m Kaitlyn. My favorite things are writing, reading, and making people laugh.

I started a personal blog, Adventures with KHill, in the summer of 2014 to document my experiences studying and later working in Germany. It evolved into a place for me to talk about other kinds of “adventures,” from my anxiety disorder to cross country moves. In 2017, I started a new blog under the name Hilliterate Blog (because puns!), where I posted book reviews and recommendations.

With the new Hilliterate.com, I have synthesized the two into one landing pad for all of my online musings, past and present. My passion is for writing fiction and I am working on a young adult novel, but I still love to ramble about my life and experiences with writing, mental illness, travel, relationships, books I’m reading, and more. You can check out all of my old blog posts in the Archive and expect new posts every 1-2 weeks…so long as I have things to say ;). Thanks for stopping by!
