Kat Carr – Writer
So … can you keep a secret?
Here’s my story. Well, not the whole story (snore!), just the bit about how I became a writer, a little bit backwards. (Please don’t tell everyone. I think this is where I’m supposed to sound like I planned the whole thing.)
You see, I didn’t always know I wanted to be a writer. As a child, the thought certainly never crossed my mind. I was far too busy putting on plays and for the last 20 years, I have continued to do just that – writing and directing shows for community theatre – shoe horned in around family and work and the general spaghetti of life. Until …
OK that didn’t happen.
Full disclosure: First I wrote a book, and then I decided I wanted to be a writer.
Yep. Entirely back to front.
Next stop: Obsession.
I live with my husband and our four amazing kids in beautiful Cairns, Far North Queensland, Australia.
I now study writing, write contemporary fiction, musical theatre, and short stories – and generally play with words – full time.
Words, words and more words.
I suspect my family and friends are very glad I decided to become a writer. It gives their ears a rest.
