To foster a lifelong love of reading through creating and publishing books that entertain, inspire, and educate. Genius Cat blends the imagination and whimsy of childhood with the wisdom of adulthood to bring kids engaging, enjoyable books with messages that last a lifetime.

To support the art of writing and illustrating for children by offering authors and illustrators innovative publishing solutions that result in more creative control and higher profits.

Some of our CREATORS:


Karen Kilpatrick

Author; Founder of Genius Cat Books, Kayppin Media & Authors4Education

I am a believer in the power of stories to connect, heal, educate, and inspire. My mom used to tell me stories that she’d make up while driving in the car, during meals, before bedtime – literally all the time! She’d create these zany worlds that would spark my imagination, helping me to view life from the perspective of possibilities. And when I became a mother, I began telling stories to my own children! Now, I write to remember the child in me and for the benefit of all kids – who remind me of the power of possibilities. Through story, I strive to connect to the joy, laughter, and openness to learning that is present within every child. I hope that you enjoy reading my books as much as I love writing them.
