I'm delighted to announce that Strata, renamed Drippy Face, has been published by Ghostly Publishing under my nom de plume Katy Krump. It's now out on Kindle with paperback release due soon. Thank you to everyone who gave me such lovely comments. You helped!
My first book, Blue Dust: Forbidden was published last year and the sequel Blue Dust: Destiny is now available on kindle and will be released in paperback soon. What can I say, I've been a busy author since signing with Ghostly Publishing.
I was a music and English teacher before almost losing my sense of humour (and my mind) and deciding I needed to devote myself to the thing I loved more than the children - writing.
I became a full-time television scriptwriter for children, entered a nationwide scriptwriting competition and was selected to be on the writing team of a popular South African soap. I also worked as an advertising copywriter, wrote radio ads and jingles, educational textbooks and readers...anything to keep the wolf from the door.
Strata is my first full length children's book, although I have written and published a number of children's musicals that have been performed widely in RSA. I've recently completed my second book, Blue Dust. Basically, I'm constantly writing, books and TV scripts and if not that then I'm plotting, planning and scheming how to take over the world....
Ten years ago I embarked on a new journey, crossing the galaxy to settle on a new planet...or as some like to call it 'Immigration'. So I am also writing a blog about transgalactic travel or the 'joys' of being an immigrant.
'In the deepest hour of the night, confess to yourself that you would die if you were forbidden to write. And look deep into your heart where it spreads its roots, the answer, and ask yourself: ‘Must I write?’ '
Rainer Maria Rilke
