Katherine Lloyd has been working in the book publishing industry since 1997. She began as administrator for the VP of Marketing at Multnomah Publishers and then transitioned into a position at an industry-leading graphic design firm where she enjoyed four years learning from the best of the best. After realizing the strength of the skills she had absorbed, she began freelancing as The DESK in 2002 and hasn’t looked back. Katherine has designed and typeset hundreds of book interiors as well as assisted with design and production of book covers, catalogs, brochures and proposals for a wide variety of publishers. She has also coached and supported many self-publishing authors through the process of creating a professional book.
Katherine has four sons, three daughter-in-laws, and four incredible grandkids. Her other passions include organizing and editing—both words and life—reading historical and literary fiction, writing poetry and prose, singing and traveling (usually to be near an ocean). Family and friend connections are always at the top of her list.
