Kathy Sharp lives by the sea in Weymouth, Dorset. She is a prolific writer of short fiction, and song lyrics for local choir Island Voices, and is the author of the Larus Series of novels, inspired by the dramatic scenery of the Jurassic Coast. Whales and Strange Stars is the first book in her new Wych Ferry Series.
Kathy says: "When I first began writing fiction, I asked myself what exactly it was I wanted to write. The answer came back, 'Something magical!' The result was three novels about the not-quite-real Isle of Larus. Since then, I have looked for that sense of the magical in all my writing."

But I do think most fiction writers find they can explore difficult subjects more easily through their characters than they might speaking as themselves. It allows you to examine both sides of a question without necessarily taking sides.(less)

An interesting blog-post caught my eye the other day: “I can’t find anything to read!” wailed the writer. When I mentioned this at my writers’ group they collapsed with laughter and frank disbelief.
