Author has written 17 stories for General, and General.

Hi, I'm Kat, and I'm a university student. I like many kinds of books and music - I'm addicted to both. I write for myself, but am toying with the idea of pursuing it more seriously once I'm done school.

Some of my favourite writers are Haruki Murakami, Carson McCullers, Margaret Atwood, Zadie Smith, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jane Austen and Jeffrey Eugenides. I don't like either Jonathan Safran Foer or John Irving. But I'll read just about anything once.

I don't want this to be one of those going-on-forever profiles, so I'll just say that if you read any of my stuff, please leave a comment, and don't be too shy. Criticism helps me become a better writer. I will try to reciprocate.
