KATE RYAN BREWER
Born in Seattle and raised in Southeast Asia, Kate is an independent writer and filmmaker, avid traveler, and macaroni and cheese connoisseur. Since graduating from Florida State University film school in 2007, she has lived and worked around the world in Los Angeles, Marrakech, London, Sydney, Washington DC, and Omaha.
In addition to the passion projects she is developing herself, she works for a range of companies and clients on feature scripts, short scripts, advertising copy, advocacy campaigns, blogs, and everything in-between. Hyperion published her first YA novel – “I Heart Vampires: Birth” under the pen name Siona McCabre in 2011. From writing comedic pop-culture parodies for Disney to developing communications for The Tahirih Justice Center to raise awareness about gender-based violence, Kate is always seeking out new and interesting ways to put her storytelling skills to use.
Currently she is directing and producing a feature documentary on forced and child marriage in the United States called “Knots: A Forced Marriage Story,” and directing a short horror film called “The Murder King.” She enjoys shenanigans, learning languages, snow surfing, and French malbec with good friends.
