Katie Elzer-Peters has been a wordsmith since she could hold a pen, destroying everything in sight by writing her name on it. She graduated, at the age of six, to a hard-sided briefcase with snap locks, and was rarely seen without it. Even though she scribbles on a computer now, she can't leave home without a pad of paper and six colors of Sharpies and Bic round stic pens. She gardens, surfs, stand up paddleboards and reads in Wilmington, N.C.
