Katherine Preston is the author of Out With It: How Stuttering Helped Me Find My Voice. At the age of twenty-four she left her home and career in London and moved to America to conduct research. She slept on strangers’ sofas, drove across the country and interviewed over a hundred different stutterers, therapists and researchers to finally face her fear of stuttering. Her first book, Out With It, chronicles her journey into finding self-acceptance.
Today she works as a freelance writer, motivational public speaker and is the Creative Director and Co-Founder of the cell phone recycling business ExchangeMyPhone. Raised in England, Preston now lives in Brooklyn, NY.
