All those that have asked for reading requests (especially those that I have asked for an update on) I've been so busy sorting things for Uni and more mundane things that I really haven't had the time to read. So sorry, but I promise to get to your stories tomorrow. Please be patient with me, I really don't have a lot of time to read at the moment (but I promise that I will). Thanks for understanding, Kathy. :)
My name is Kathy and I am 25 years young.
I can tell you that I have been writing for as long as I can remember, when I was a child I would make my friends write words and then spell check them - it's a wonder that I have friends left.
If I am not found reading a rather juicy book, or writing my own rather juicy book, then I can be found dancing around my front room and singing at the top of my voice (completely out of tune and scaring my neighbours).
I have a very patient boyfriend who understands that sometimes I must disappear to another world and then tell him all about it (every single detail) upon my return. It's safe to say my daughter enjoys that part more than him.
Anyhow, I'm still new to all this 'sharing your stories online business' so feel free to read whatever takes your interest.
By the way - I feel I must point this out. I am from England so I will be spelling the word COLOUR with a 'U' because we are just strange like that - thanks.
Short stories that I entered into contests are:
A Slave to Oneself came in 1st place for a short story in a story contest @M. K. Brown
Handful of Love came in 1st place for Realistic Romance @Sarahh365

The Girl Chapter 11 came in at 3rd place for Non-Fiction @silver84
A short story posted on BooksieSilk for KM2's next contest - And Bingo was His Name-o: here's the link -
Most of my writing is horror / paranormal / mystery and crime / bizarre and never ever the ending that you expected, so please, feel free to give any of them a read and let me know what you think. Thanks, Kathy.
So, I've decided that too many people are coming along and asking me to read something of theirs without checking to see if the genre is something I WILL enjoy or reading something of mine first. The only way we get noticed is by helping each other and if you are not prepared to read something of mine FIRST then I WILL NOT do the same for you because I am simply getting far too many requests.
I like to find my own things to read too, so if I find you and read you and I enjoy it, then by all means, ask me to read something else. But, I will expect you to read at least one thing of mine.
Pay attention to this! - All those reading and commenting on my works FIRST will be the reading requests that I give my time to. Also I am harsh with my critiques sometimes so please, if you don't like them don't ask me.
Also - the stories that I don't really read tend to be ROMANCE and TEEN ROMANCE. I will read FANTASY if it grips me from the first page. Regarding these three genres, if I DON'T really enjoy it then I will read a standard of four chapters and give constructive critisim on each chapter.
I will place a reading list up here for the NOVELS that I am reading at the moment:
