Bio: 
Katie Lippa has been acting and writing for two thirds of her life. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College and began working as the Assistant Artistic Director and Head Writer of the short-lived, but critically acclaimed Avatar Theatrical Ensemble of Los Angeles. In addition, she was the Director of The Writers Group, a small but fruitful organization which helped to develop the careers of new writers. Katie has won awards in the World Cinema Film Festival as well as the 2003 Screenwriters Expo. She is also a recipient of a Puffin Foundation grant for writers. Katie also ran an informational website for several years that assisted actors and writers to avoid some of the challenges and pitfalls common to the entertainment industry. Other entertainment accomplishments Katie has had are: performances as an actress in over twenty theatrical productions; work as a stand-up comic at The Comedy Store; technical experience as a production coordinator, casting associate, set dresser, prop person, stage manager and assistant director. Her first book, 'Hiding in Water: A Memoir Based Mostly in Reality' is available on Amazon.com and via her website, www.lippalogic.com. She is thrilled to have relocated to her home state of Maine after several years “away.”
