Hi, I’m Kat! (Officially, the author Kathryn Wells, but hey, I like ‘Kat’ more.)
Welcome to Treeshallow, a place for me to share with you my works in progress, book reviews and general musings. I’m an author of both novels and short stories, and I love all things fantasy.
My debut upper middle grade fantasy, UNOFFICIAL DETECTIVE, has recently been published by Creativia, along with its sequels, ACCIDENTAL ARCHAEOLOGIST and UNSEASONED ADVENTURER, plus my stand-alone middle-grade portal fantasy, THE DOOR BETWEEN WORLDS.
I’ve also recently been bitten by the poetry bug, so quite a few of my posts are poems, and I’m actually working on a poetry collection.
There you have it – my little ‘about me’. Feel free to explore my blog, there may be something that takes your fancy!
So I have lovely digital ARCs (advance reader copies) of my book The Origin Stone, which is set to be released in March 2019 from Nuff Said Publishing. I’m giving away copies to book bloggers and book reviewers, so if you’d like one, please get in touch. Here’s the blurb:
Emily Renzi thinks she’s going crazy. After her parents move to a quiet village, she senses that something is off about the house they’re living in. Dreams of strange creatures invade her sleep, and mysterious shapes appear in the garden. Confiding in her older brother, Ru, they research the house’s background and find that a scientist disappeared there during World War Two. Afterwards, sightings of strange creatures were whispered around the village. Could the creatures in Emily’s dreams and the ones rumored about be the same? And if so, what do they want from her? As she struggles to piece together the truth from the fiction, she finds out that beasts aren’t always monsters – humans, however, are a different matter.
