I have been writing poetry since I was six years old. Through the years I have had much poetry accepted in small press and have been the winner and runner-up in State and University competitions. I aspire for more poetry publication, and to have a novel published. .

Kate Kinnear's tag cloud

Smashwords book reviews by Kate Kinnear

  • Champ, A Rags To Riches Story on Jan. 31, 2017

    From the beginning, the writing style was fast-paced, clean, clear and concise. So as not to give anything away, I describe in summary: The action was certainly sufficient to hold interest, and the interaction of characters was engaging. I was drawn in quickly and could easily identify. Although the main vein of the story was not "topically" something I would first reach for from the shelf, I found myself quickly drawn into the story, and can readily describe it as an enjoyable read. Highly recommend.
