Interview with Katje van Loon

Published 2013-11-07.
When did you first start writing?
My mother swears on her life that I wrote my first poem when I was 2. I didn't start seriously applying myself to my writing until I was 12, however.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Impatience, mostly.
Describe your desk
An unholy mess, covered in empty plates from my latest foraging forays and piles of yarn and knitting atop bigger piles of paper.
What are you working on next?
Currently I'm writing a Nanowrimo story that I'm publishing online as I finish each chapter. It's set in a AU Earth where Christianity never existed, and my heroine is the Antichrist from our Earth. I'm also revising the sequel to Bellica, and trying to finish up the next book in The Borderlands Saga. After those two I'll be working on the third book in The Third Age, which is currently clawing at my mental doors, begging me to write it.
