I used to believe that a writer’s mission was to tell the world important truths through stories. Talk about pressure. If you’re like me, you don’t handle pressure well. I’m generally laidback, but when I start worrying that I’m not as intentional, skilled, or efficient as I should be, my life can get wild in a hurry.
Former Story Embers Secretary
Kate Lamb is a writer, dreamer, poet, singer, psychologist, color enthusiast, and a child of God. She gravitates to anything sparkly and is a firm believer in the power of color-coding your closet. (Just your closet. Nothing else is worth that level of organization.) Newly married to the love of her life, Daeus Lamb, she spends her days writing, tutoring, designing, and trying her hand (with limited success and unmitigated enthusiasm) at baking all kinds of bread. Baking and drawing are her sensory therapies, singing and poetry are her emotional outlets, and beautifying the world one story at a time is her consuming passion. Also answers to “the MBTI geek” and “that color girl.” Will definitely convince you to revamp your closet and spill all of your darkest emotional secrets within a year of becoming your friend. She’s been writing from the age of 14 and aspires to spin stories with the soul of Tolkien, the simplicity of C. S. Lewis, the creative genius of Ray Bradbury, and the raw emotional truth of Markus Zusak and Patrick Ness. She obviously has no problems with dreaming big. She shares a platform with her (much more organized) other half, and they can usually be found up to something new and ambitious at DaeusLamb.com.
