I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kind of things you can’t see from the centre

Kate Wickens is a novelist, blogger and screenwriter.  fond of flea markets, Studio Ghibli and respectful inappropriateness.  Fascinated by anything that is not quite straightforward. Like humans. 

Come on in and take a look around (though you’ll have to pour your own drink, I’m afraid)

Read the opening chapters to Cursed Love Blues

my new book about Atë, the goddess of infatuation and recklessness

rise authentic woman!

Celebrate the woman in all her messy, imaginative, brave, generous, bonkers brilliance

Listen to some tunes

and have a little dance at the bus stop (or in your head if you’d rather keep your inner ecstasy under wraps, being Tuesday morning and all) 

I like taking genres that are usually thought of as male – the western, for example - and giving them a revisionist female twist. Myths and legends seem fertile ground for a fresh modern perspective, hence Cursed Love Blues.
