Hello Acadamates, I’m Kerrie and I’m from Newcastle upon Tyne. And yes, I can’t wait to give you all a “haway man” when you hit your goals.
I read pretty much across the board, although I prefer speculative fiction. I don’t really have favourite authors, although I have a few go-to authors, like Jim Butcher or BExp friend Shannon Mayer. Do you remember discovering reading, a book, or an author (for me it was 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as a kid)? That indescribable feeling of the world opening up to you, anything is possible, and everything just seems so much … more? I had that feeling again recently when I “discovered” Paul Tremblay. If you haven’t read anything by him yet, all I can say is wow. Just …. wow!
I’m not sure yet what I’ll write in the acadamy (wants to write all the things!), and my goal is to be a career author, earning enough to support my family while putting out work I can be proud of. Winning a Hugo wouldln’t hurt either 😉
