About the Craft Better Books Team

Hi, I’m Katie Wall, the book coach and editor at Craft Better Books.

I love stories, words, and grammar (yes, really!). As a kid I devoured books, in high school I started writing my first fantasy novel, and in college I earned a BA of English with an emphasis in Creative Writing. One of my first jobs was at my college’s writing center, and it was there that I fell in love with supporting writers as they clarify their points, improve their craft, and revise their material to be the best it can be.

I have over a decade of experience helping writers in a variety of capacities—as a coach, developmental editor, copy editor, and proofreader—and genres. I’ve worked with realistic fiction, historical fiction, religious nonfiction, textbooks, PhD dissertations… the list goes on. My heart, though, is with speculative fiction.

When I learned that book coaching was a profession, I immediately knew this was what I wanted to do. I enrolled in the Author Accelerator Book Coach Certification program, became a certified coach, and we launched Craft Better Books. It is such a privilege to help writers hone their craft, get to the heart of their story, and work toward achieving their goals.

I’m so excited you’ve found us and we can’t wait to see how we can support you in reaching your writing goals!

Hi, I'm Andrew Wall, the world-building consultant at Craft Better Books.

I'm a nerd. A huge nerd.

Half the time when Katie asks me what I'm doing, I'm creating characters, building worlds, or dreaming up new and interesting settings—for fun.

My degrees—a BA in History and Biblical Studies, a Master's of Divinity, and an MA in Christian Education—my life experience as a professional Dungeon Master, and my general love for all things story (people's stories, characters' stories, stories about places, etc.) have uniquely equipped me to give you the support you need for crafting all of your world-building essentials.

To say I am looking forward to working with you to piece together the foundational elements of your story would be a severe understatement. Let's get to it!
