Meet the Author

Hello, My name is Kate Policani, and I’m a compulsive fiction writer. My first story was called “Super Cat”. It wasn’t good, it was horribly spelled, and the idea was mostly plagiarized. Every journal I own begins with a few days of my life and the rest is a hastily-scrawled record of whatever story came out. Ideas come from my dreams. I think about my stories in bed as I drift off to sleep. I often wake at three am with a writing revelation. I might be dreaming up romance stories in the line at the DMV or texting a poignant line for my main character to my email address from the bathroom at the mall. I live in Seattle, Washington with my wonderful husband and three energetic children. Most of my writing is done to the sound of my children’s voices, and is interrupted every few sentences. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

    Thank you

    This is my first review that i have done on anything. I wanted to thank you for writing this book. This book is great . It provides tips and links to help you get started. It has even inspired me to get started on my book. I've always heard that the best things in life are free. This little book is a great resource to have!

    Honest but not well written book about writing fiction.

    This is an honest but sadly not very well written book about a woman who wrote a book and then somehow expected people to buy it. If the book she's trying to sell is like this book, it wasn't well organized or seem to lead up to any climax or goal. But she is very honest about how hard she worked and how difficult it is to get publish or if you're self-published, to get people to buy your book. I think she should keep on writing and maybe take some writing classes and read how to books. I've read that many successful published authors have written several novels before their books began to be published.
