Hi, my name is Kara. I am a fantasy writer and world building enthusiast.
My oldest writing memory is a definitely-not-awful poem about an Ancient Egyptian mummy travelling to the afterlife. I was a strange six year old.
I mostly write fantasy and I think the love of it started right back when I was six learning about Ancient Egypt. This was a civilisation that was just so different, so unique. It allowed me to escape into my own little world.
Escaping into my own world
I love fantasy because it allows me to escape into a world far more interesting than this one. A world where anything is possible.
My aim is to recreate that feeling for someone else with my work.
I’m currently working on a fantasy series, set in a world I’ve created. So, I’ll be blogging about fantasy, world building, my process, experiences and inspiration.
If you’re a fellow fantasy writer or reader, head over to my Build a Fantasy World section, where hopefully you’ll find something of interest or help.
As you can see from the menu, I don’t just blog about fiction.
When I’m not living in a fantasy world, I’m a freelance copywriter by day. In this section, you’ll find posts on how to earn a living writing and how to stay productive when working for yourself.
When I’m not busy scribbling away, I’m itching to go travelling. Travelling inspires new ideas and broadens the mind – which makes it great for writers (fiction or otherwise). So you’ll find a bit about that in the Real Life section too.
Feel free to get in touch for a chat about all things fiction or freelancing.
