My name is Katie Kuperman and I am an author, copywriter and entrepreneur based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Not only is writing my passion, but also my career in which I own and operate a copywriting and strategizing business, Striking Content. My deepest cares in this world revolve around positivity, living an authentic life, being kind and grateful, and solid communication. It is my hope and my dream that by writing with purpose and intent on important, relatable topics, I can have a positive impact on the perceptions, understandings and actions of those who read my work.
Bullying, cyber-bullying, internet safety and mental health are very real issues in our world. I was first compelled to write a fictional story that seeks not only to raise the issues of bullying and mental health, but also to do so in a manner that neither the heart nor the brain can ignore. This was followed by a non-fiction workbook designed to put feelings and teachings into action in simple, digestible and effective ways. Both books are rooted in a positive message centered around the importance of talking openly and speaking up. And I want the world to hear it.
“Any change in its entirety may be more complex, but the start of it is simple: start talking.”

"Chapter 17 particularly relevant! Dramatic use of POV. Engaging narrative. Compelling prose. Highly recommend. Looking forward to author’s next book."
"All through the story, the perusers can feel the feelings of the characters. The creator sends an amazing message about tormenting and motivates you to join the mission to end it."

I knew I wanted to write a book. “About what?” was the question. Until I came across Amanda Todd’s video on the news many years ago. Her story, which she labeled as one of struggle, bullying, suicide and self-harm, is what compelled me to put pen to paper in my creation of what has become a novel with a message.
After launching and promoting The Only Way Out in 2021 and 2022, there were numerous teachers and educators who showed interest. This led me on the path of my second book, Many Ways Up. Where The Only Way Out evokes emotion and heightens readers’ awareness of bullying, mental health and the importance of talking openly, Many Ways Up teaches, educates, provides actionable tasks for everyday life and invites readers to set their own priorities and look inside themselves.

A portion of all book proceeds are donated.
Part of the proceeds from every sale of The Only Way Out go to the Amanda Todd Legacy Society.
Founded by Carol Todd, this nonprofit organization helps those in need in a direct and impactful way.
From providing private counseling to bullied youth who suffer from anxiety and damaged self-esteem, right through to funding for family food insecurities and youth mental health programs, the Amanda Todd Legacy Society is committed to “the dream of helping kids” (words of Amanda Todd, before she left our world in 2012).
Many Ways Up donates part of its proceeds to the well-known Canadian organization, BullyingCanada.
In 2006, the organization was founded by two young people who were terribly bullied in high school, and who set out to make a difference in the lives of other kids who were suffering. This registered charity offers a 24/7/365 Lifeline Bullied Kids Support Network via telephone, email and text. It also provides anti-bullying print collateral and workshops to communities and schools – more than 4,320 presentations to date.
