I’m a writer of young adult fiction, specializing in contemporary fantasy, historical fantasy, and historical genres. My books range from a superhero fantasy series to reworked folktales to Victorian ghost fiction. My themes are coming-of-age, with very little fo ... read more

Paul Kater was born in the Netherlands in 1960. He quickly developed a feel for languages but did not pursue a career in those as his native language, Dutch, did not offer many options in that time.
Since 2003 he's been writing seriously, first posting his scribblings to an amateur writers mailinglist, and then publishing shorter and longer stories on the internet. Paul currently lives in Cuijk (the Netherlands), with his two cats, his books and the many characters he's developed in the past years, who claim he is a figment of their imagination.
Paul mainly writes Fantasy and Science Fiction/Steampunk but also tries his luck in other genres.

“WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW.” UNKNOWN
“YOU HAVE TO LIVE IT UP BEFORE YOU CAN WRITE IT DOWN.” ROBIN MOORE.
After three decades of ‘living it up’, it is now time for A.J. Sendall to write it down. Not as a dry travelogue or memoir, but as realistic novels based on real life experiences. Experiences, which still run technicolour through his mind.
Since ’79, A.J. Sendall has been collecting people and places. From blood-soaked streets of Kampala, the polluted dust bowls of the Sahara, to the pristine ice floes of the Antarctic, he has gathered and filed them away. Some have recently pushed through the bars of insecurity and are now at large in the pages of his first three novels. Others await their fut ... read more
