About Katye

KDR BW Headshot

Katye Riselli is a storyteller with a passion for the written word. Whether translating dense policy into public speeches or candidly sharing from her own life experiences, Katye’s writing has reached audiences across the United States and around the world. She has written for President George W. and Mrs. Laura Bush, Karen Hughes, as well as several other government and military officials. In that capacity her work has appeared in The Washington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, and The Miami Herald.

Katye has a heart for truth and a gift with words, and she uses both to offer encouragement and hope to those around her.  She’s been a guest on EveryBitterThingIsSweet.com, anothermotherrunner.com, and featured in several military spouse communities. She writes at www.katyeriselli.com and is currently pursuing her dream of writing her own book, sharing stories of triumph in the midst of tragedy, deep disappointment, and a few unexpected detours.

Katye is married to Mark, and they have two daughters. They call Virginia home, but welcome family and friends to wherever the Air Force sends them.  When she’s not writing, you’ll likely find her chasing her girls, reading a good book, or running. (She’s an occasional half-marathoner who frequently talks friends into joining her to make the journey more fun.)
