Presumably a person, occasionally a table.

I write stories.

King of the What Now?

It’s only a new book, kittens.





YUP YUP. At the end of this year there will be a new Cat Hellisen on the shelves. I have been working a stack during this lovely pandemic *sigh*, the upside of which is that KING OF THE HOLLOW DARK will be releasing on 15 December 2020.





Currently the ebook is up for preorder, but the paperback will be added soon, so I am proper excited for the launch.

“No matter what the results, it is my choices that define me. And I will fight for them, even when it seems that failure is inevitable. Perhaps most especially then.”
Cat Hellisen, When the Sea Is Rising Red

“In the end, we make our choices on our own. And no matter how stupid they are, we have to live—or die—with what we’ve done. Sometimes choosing our moment of death is the only freedom we have left.”
Cat Hellisen, When the Sea Is Rising Red

“If there’s one thing my mother taught me, it is how to wear the perfect mask. Never show them what you’re really feeling because that’s how they hurt you.”
Cat Hellisen, When the Sea Is Rising Red

“It is, I suppose, the common grief of children at having to protect their parents from reality. It is bitter for the young to see what awful innocence adults grow into, that terrible vulnerability that must be sheltered from the rodent mire of childhood.”
Katherine Dunn, Geek Love

“What I mean by an educated taste is someone who has the same tastes that I have.”
Edward Albee

“Because even if we're strange and Cursed and Beasts, the people Above are monsters.”
Leah Bobet, Above

“The girls cannot contain their joy. They must start rehearsing immediately. They teach Saluni a new song that they have composed at the swamps. It is about croaking frogs in their green and brown colours and how the girls caught them and pierced their eyes with sharp sticks and set them free to hop about in wonderful blindness. It is a haunting melody. They tell Saluni that the song is all about the fun they had at the swamps today. The blinded frogs will live peacefully because now they won't be bothered by the bright rays of the sun. They won't have to run from danger, because they won't see it. They will therefore be safe since danger only catches those who run away from it.”
Zakes Mda, The Whale Caller

“I had the brief notion that his heart, pressed flat as a flower, crimson and thin as tissue paper, lay in this file. It was a very thin one.”
Angela Carter, The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories
