I am Kate, a 30-mumble-mumble-something Kiwi living in Melbourne. I write stories and hope one day to have published author status. Then I won’t be lying when I mark down “writer” as my occupation on the landing card at passport control.
I’m currently working on a space opera featuring a mining slave refugee and a surly mercenary. I write when my kidlets are sleeping, basically. I have two boys. They’re pretty awesome.
I love coffeecoffeecoffee, sunshine, sci fi and fantasy, marshmallow, martinis, lip balm, and reading. I lived in London for 5 years — couldn’t handle the winter, but frequently feel nostalgia for my time there. And I also feel homesick for Aotearoa, my homeland.
I like to blog about a motley crew of subjects — whatever happens to take my fancy — book reviews, my writing progress, experimental 70s baking, the progress of our house (build & finishes), beauty product reviews, professing my love for terrible reality TV, et cetera…
I’m a sporadic poster. Check out my instagram or follow me on the twittler for more regular bite-sized updates.
