THE PERSON BEHIND THE BOOK

My name is Katie Kuperman and I am the author of The Only Way Out. I’m also a copywriter, entrepreneur and mother of two. My life has been rich with many experiences including competitive sport, travel, academics, entrepreneurship, writing and reaching for my dreams. I’m a woman who gives it her all, works hard, and gives herself wholeheartedly to this world. Quality family time is something I treasure tremendously, as well as forest walks, meaningful conversation and strong espresso.

WHY I WROTE THE BOOK

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been an anti-bullying advocate. I believe we ought to lift each other up, not put each other down.

When I came across Amanda Todd’s heartbreaking story, tears streamed and emotions ran high. It was at this very moment that I knew I would write a book about bullying. As I wrote, my story deepened in subject matter to also include mental health struggles, facing fear and overcoming unfathomable hardships.

By taking people through a touching and inspiring story, it is my vision and my hope that I may have a positive impact on the understandings, perceptions and actions of those who read it.

 

WHO IT'S FOR

The Only Way Out is for youth and young adults. More specifically, it’s written for an audience between 13 and 18 years of age. It’s also for parents, educators, and anti-bullying and mental health advocates. It’s for those who feel that they themselves or someone else they know might benefit from a book with a message about a few of the most pressing issues of our time.

THE DEDICATION & GIVING BACK

During the publishing process, a thought came to me.

What if I could dedicate my book to the very girl whose
story moved me to put pen to paper?

I am honoured to say this is precisely what I did.

After finding Amanda’s mother, Carol Todd,
I explained who I was, what I wrote and what I
wanted to do. She granted me permission and now
my project has even greater meaning and
purpose behind it.

The Only Way Out is now aligned with the
Amanda Todd Legacy Society, and a part of the
proceeds of every book sale go towards this initiative.

MORE THAN A BOOK

A message to be shared.

As I travel along this exciting journey, The Only Way Out has become much more than just a book. It is a brand and a campaign that rallies for anti-bullying, mental health, living a positive life, and always TALKING about what we’re going through in order to initiate progress in the right direction.
