Yes, K is for Kate, which is my name. So I thought I'd take this opportunity to introduce myself to those visitors who are not regulars to this blog.
Well, I'm Kate. I'm a writer, although unfortunately not a full-time writer (yet). I have a day job in the film business, which means it often turns into a night job as well…. But I love it. I was a cinema manager for 23 years and have recently moved into a new role in marketing at the New Zealand Film Commission.
So yes, I live in New Zealand at the moment. I haven't always. I've lived in Austria, Germany, the UK, the US, Samoa and Tokelau, China and Australia. I like to travel… My dad was a diplomat so we moved all the time when I was a kid, and the habit seems to have stuck with me. That said, I have been in New Zealand for almost 10 years now. Nothing like kids to keep the travel bug under control.
I have two sons, one partner and a part-time cat I share with most of the neighborhood (but I swear he likes our house best).
I love live music, red wine, bitter chocolate, obscure movies and books that make me cry. I drink my coffee strong and black. As an ex-chef, I love to cook and eat delicious food, but don't have as much time for it as I'd like.
Your turn… Tell me something about you.
