Hi Kate and welcome to Adventures in Authorland. Please get comfortable and tell us a little about your adventure.
Thanks for having me Jean. I’m delighted for an opportunity to meet some NZ readers.
Up until this year I was working part time. I wrote two days a week while my daughter was at school. Sometimes I’d work into the night if I had a competition deadline to meet. I entered lots of short story competitions, but the field was always so competitive. There are so many very talented writers out there. I received one prize and a number of commendations and they kept me going while I was polishing The Yearning.
