Katja L Kaine lives in a hippyish commune in Yorkshire with her husband, two cats, dog, escapologist baby, a chess genius and a Pole.
She spends her time furiously writing novels and short stories at breakneck speed then pedantically combing through every word to transform them into something vaguely readable.
She also runs a writing group where the critique varies from harsh to brutal.
Thanks to yoga and meditation, she is bendy in both mind and body.
These are her favourite writing quotes:
“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”
― W. Somerset Maugham
“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It’s that easy, and that hard.”
― Neil Gaiman
“I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.”
― Shannon Hale
