I’m a writer and a reader, a traveller, photographer, and wannabe sketcher. Welcome to my site; I hope we will enjoy many conversations.

 

A bit about each page…

  • “Eclectic Reader”book reviews – My reading tastes are wide-ranging, often involving travel (place) and people (character-driven stories). I particularly like are Lorna Crozier (poet) and Peter Mattiessen (prose fiction and nonfiction), but that’s today. I “read like a writer,” ponder and think about exactly what keeps me turning pages, about how authors manage unique and fresh approaches to the handful of usual themes, and what engages me most, what lingers and influences my writing. There’s much to learn from others. Do visit and let’s have a conversation.

 

  • “Travel & Other Passions”  Home to my travel blog, I include snippets from my travels, including photos and sketches. (My sailing blog: “Adventures Over Land and Sea” can be seen at: Traveller-Kate; it features photos and stories of Caribbean sojourns.)

 

  • “Workshops and Events” is where you’ll find information about writing workshops and other activities. If you’d like something that isn’t offered, please let me know. References can be supplied.

 

  • “About” is self-explanatory. Email if you want to know more (Kate’s email).
