Test Author Kate
Author Science Fiction
Kate has been writing for almost 25 years, but has never published her work before, leaving her work to be read by only a select group of friends. She says, "This process means a lot to me, because it's taking the uncertainty of the publishing process away, and walking me through it in an encouraging and supported way."
The Island of the Mind first came to be as a short, coming-of-age story, focused on the interaction between conscious, logical thoughts of adolescence and adulthood and the fantastic, and often abstract, thoughts of childhood. This investigation of what it means to grow up suspends reality, as the concepts of Reality, Reason, Order, Imagination, Magic, and Wonder direct and influence two children as they strive to grow up. This journey through the unconscious world of dreams just might awaken the child in all of us.
