I’m just going to get this initial, awkward post out of the way right up top here to get it out of the way. Hi, my name is Katherine Kim and I write things. Sometimes they’re stories and what with the state of storytelling being what it is, and my friends being what they are, and my family being pushy like it is, I’ve ended up publishing them for others to enjoy. I hope.
I’ve been writing since just about before I could hold a crayon, according to my folks, who made damn sure that I was well grounded in the classics. My dad thought that Lord of the Rings was a phenomenal choice for bedtime reading when my brother and I were very young, and still doesn’t understand really why we kept having nightmares before the gang even gets to meet up with Strider. (“But who could possibly be afraid of Tom Bombadil?” “Dad. Before they get to Tom, a tree tries to eat them.”) Mom went a slightly different route and read us Christmas Carol every December, and Agatha Christie the rest of the year.
So you know. Just a fairly normal, well-balanced perspective on ways to kill and torture people from sorcery to stabbing and well beyond. Totally normal.
Anyhow, I’m starting up this page so that folks can find all the various silly little things I’ve written all gathered together in one place for ease of perusing. Maybe I can also amuse you with my ramblings here in this little corner of the web as well. I’m not sure what all I will post about, but with a lunatic and needy cat, a newly-minted First Grader (ok, technically there are a few days of kindergarten left, but he’s well over it mentally. The Boy assures me in no uncertain terms that he’s in First Grade.) and the rest of the cast of bizarrely not fictional people that surround me I am sure that I can come up with something. Not to mention my books and any information regarding that sort of thing will be posted up right here, as well as in my email list. You have joined my email list, right?
I hope you’ll stick around while we smooth out any of the bumps and wrinkles around here, and while I find my feet in the strange world of blogging. I’m not entirely certain yet what sort of things I’ll post here, probably a little of this and a little of that. Some adventures I go on, musings about the arts and the world in general, excerpts from my works in progress… I freely admit to reading other author’s blogs for inspiration, but I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by interesting folks, so we’ll see.
Thanks for visiting with me, and I hope to see you again soon!
