Meet the Author

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.After learning far too much about computers he started to make a living with them. During all that time he always wrote short stories, little things to entertain family and friends and also himself with.Since 2003 he's been writing more seriously, first posting his scribblings on an amateur writer's mailing list, and then publishing shorter and longer stories on the internet. Due to the international character of the Internet, all Paul's stories so far are written in English.Paul currently lives in Cuijk, in 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.Visit the author at paulkater.com

    Highly Recommend - check it out!!!

    Just a great entertaining read. Fun, fun, fun! Could not stop until finished. An adult (but not anything X or even R) 'fairytale' with all the right enchanting elements. Must read the 1st two books as an intro to characters, but they are well worth the read too. I hope there will be more 'Hilda' to come. Will definately follow this writer.

    3rd book's the charm!

    I read the first two Hilda books and was ready to stop reading the series because of the awkward way the author used the English language and because of the unnecessary foul language and the perversity of the 7 dwarves in the second book. I also found it hard to figure out what audience the author was directing his book to. Definitely not a children's book but some of the plots seem more like a young adult or intermediate novel. Although the 3rd book was overly long, the author's style and use of language is improving. T

    Wonderful story

    I really enjoyed this book and the Hilda series. This book, in particular, could have been several hundred pages shorter and still been great. There was just too much lag time, if you will. There are so many instances that I smiled, laughed, and was upset right along with Hilda and William. The finale was very, very well done!

    Yup, simple is still the key ...

    Nice description of goings-on, although sometimes a bit convoluted. Really enjoyed this read, though.

    less the challenge and more hilda

    This is book 3 in the series and was much longer than the first two. At first I was worried about this, because I have read series books before where the author tries to go back and “enhance” the character in a later book and it ends up being too much filler and like a re-invention.
    I am happy to report that Paul Kater wrote book 3 without having that problem. I was pleased with how much I learned to adore Hilda in this book. Also, I was so happy to see William return from book 1. Hilda comes to life and gains human character in book 3. Plenty of humor bounces around and kept me smiling and sometimes even laughing out loud. The irony of fairytale land and earth world phrases and concepts being thrown together is just ingenious at every turn.
    The truth is that this book is much less about the Challenge but more about Hilda’s “becoming.” The author flawlessly executes this without re-creating her character.

    Still good, but...

    I am enjoying the Hilda series, but this book was just too long. Love the romance, but we didn't need an account of every glance, every flutter of every heartbeat. Still a great plot and outrageously funny moments, and I'm grateful to the author for sharing this great character.

    Stick with the story

    Better than the first two, but had the author worried more about the plot than irrelivant lovey dovey (no not sexual)scenes it would be tons better. I am a hopeless romantic, but this was too much even for me.
