Hi, I am Kateryna. Happy to meet you :-)
As you have probably guessed, I am an avid book reader. Quite early books became my teachers and entertainers. They were constantly saving me from boredom at school ;-) (I used to put paper covers on all my books so that to read fiction during the lessons without being caught.).
I started writing after having read Penrod by Booth Tarkington. Penrod, the main character, was secretly writing down stories that he was imagining, and I thought that it might be cool to try it to save all the stories in my head for the future. Back then I couldn't even imagine that once I would publish some of them.
Nevertheless, writing gradually became my favorite hobby. I consider myself very lucky because it is not a job with deadlines and obligations, but something that I am doing first of all for my own enjoyment ;-)
Raven Boy is my first published book. First and foremost, it represents an important achievement to me, something I never even dreamt possible. Not just because it takes a lot of motivation and perseverance to write and publish a book, but because the hardest part for me was to work up the courage and let someone else read it. My relationship with the books I love is quite private.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for reading me! It means a lot to me :-)
