Welcome to my website!

Thanks for stopping by my website. I am the daughter of two professors, my father taught psychology at CSUN and my mom taught English at Santa Monica College. Following in their footsteps, I am an English professor at Hudson County Community College, teaching literature, composition, and speech classes. I was a Fulbright-Nehru scholar in India during spring 2022, teaching two courses at Fergusson College in Pune--a wonderful, transformative sojourn in India.


In 2002 I co-wrote The Power of a City at Prayer. On April 24, 2024 Remnant, my historical novel about the daughter and sister of Olaudah Equiano, was published.


Acclaimed author Jeffery Renard Allen states "In Remnant, gifted novelist Katie Sweeting powerfully dramatizes the interconnected stories of two Black women surviving the evils of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. We live their struggles. We suffer their setbacks and triumphs. Sweeting's book brings alive a past that some want us to forget. A most welcome achievement."
