Hi, I'm Kate Walker.
I live in Australia and I've been writing since 1977, and I love it. Writing is the only thing I want to do when I get up in the morning. I'd write all day long if I could. Which is just as well, because I'm one of the slowest writers on the planet. It takes me an age to write anything. I do dozens of drafts. Even a short story can take me years to complete.
Because of the vast differences in what I write – Children’s Books, YA & Adult stories – I've posted my work on separate web pages. Please see:

I also taught Creative Writing for 20+ years and I’ve just published two booklets of exercises that cover the creative approach I developed. Because my first classes were with students with learning difficulties, I had to find a whole new way of teaching writing … and I did. Please see: www.creativewritingclassroom.com

When it comes to discovering a character through their words, actions and thoughts, it's hard to beat Kate Walker. She has mastered the art of saying so much in so few words. This short story is only 5 pages long but we see a lifetime of the relationship between 2 brothers. Kate's writing is gutsy, hard-hitting and honest, revealing what people really do think and feel even when they tell no-one else what is in their hearts. This is awesome writing. Loved it!
