Kate Murray was told she would never write… But from an early age she wanted to tell stories. So she told them, all the time, to anyone who would listen. At the age of twenty four she was diagnosed with dyslexia and suddenly the world of the written word was open to her. Now she writes from her workshop, which she calls her shed, in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. Kate is writing her way out of dyslexia.
Kate will tell her story and give advice to others to do the same.
You can see what she is up to on her blog (http://kate0murray.com/).
So far she has written three selections of short stories, one murder mystery, a horror, a disaster and three children’s books. Of those, the horror, The Gone, is about to get a sequel and there is also a picture book on the horizon.
Kate loves to make her stories come to life and to create strong female characters.
“I live in west Wales in a small place called Tregaron. We normally get snowed in every year for about three days despite living on a bus route. I have a dog and cat, both ginger (accidental) and I help run a smallholding with my parents. We are mostly self-sufficient for veg and we raise our own animals (yes for meat).
When I can I write, when I’m not writing I make toys or paint pets. Any spare time I sleep.”
