Katrina Ray

 

I’ve wanted to write for as long as I can remember. The only time I wanted to do something more was when I aspired to be a librarian. I even wrote to a long-extinct wish fulfilment children’s TV programme asking if they could grant me this desire for the day. They didn’t. Looking back, I can see it might not have made the most gripping television for viewers but books and writing are my big passions. And food.

Having worked for many years in event management and sponsorship, interspersed with a blissful period at the also sadly defunct Ottakar’s, I am now fortunate enough to work as a freelance writer. It’s a varied job as on any given day I can be producing articles on subjects as random as ethical jewellery, trends in interior design, online gaming, the hottest Indonesian nightclubs, plumbing and electrical tips and even the heady world of man-caves. I specialise in SEO web content, copywriting and guest blogging but have written on a variety of topics and recently completed a commission to ghost-write a children’s fantasy series.

I also write short stories, one of which was last year shortlisted in an international writing competition, children’s fiction and am currently dabbling in poetry. In between these ramblings I run a cake business and try to work on my YA novel, Dazed.

My website and blog – very much a work in progress – is here: Adventures down the rabbit hole

  1. Hi Kat
    I’m in Burgundy for a quiet week and am catching up with some reading including your lovely poems and prose. What would Paul do? He’d invite you to his fairwell concert in Hyde Park on July 15th that’s what he’d do. He’s giving up touring and this is our last chance to see this remarkable man. I first saw him at an all nighter in London when I was 18 ! April Come She Will inspired me and I’ve loved his work all these years.
    The website says James Taylor is there as well.Wow.
    Be there!
    Best wishes,
    Ashley

  2. Hi Ashley and Hilary, hope you both well. Yes, it was me that you met at that party – was a pleasure to meet you both. Details of our next performances will be posted here but likely to be February/March time at the earliest. However, you most welcome to the writing meetings or perhaps will catch you at the Forum? Take care and have a fabulous Xmas, Kat xx

    • Hi Kat
      It was good to meet you as well A lovely Christmas so far thanks and hope yours is.At parties you only get snatched conversations so if you fancy a coffee at Trinity before Feb/ March let me know. I frequently pass by on my way to Ightham Mote where I’m involved as a consultant for NT.You can get hold of me on my email which saves me opening this up!
      I’ll check what’s on at the Forum so yes might see you there.
      Enjoy the rest of this lovely time.
      Ashley x

  3. Hi Katrina
    David Smith of TWells Writers has given me your link / website address.
    Were you by any chance the Katrina we spoke to on Christmas Eve in Crawley.?
    If so say where you are performing your work in the TWells area.
    If not it’s a case of mistaken identity so apologies!!
    Happy Christmas either way!
    Ashley and Hilary
