Kate Pavelle learned to use a gas mask in first grade, fired her first VZ50 in her sixth grade civil defense class and her dog was a wolf hybrid stolen from the Czechoslovak border guard. Her eccentric father blew out the windows of their house with a stun grenade.
Her high-stakes childhood leaves Kate searching for the next exciting thing: martial arts, horses, toxic mushrooms.
Her quests resonates through her suspense, thrillers and romances. Kate once knew the hunger of being a political refugee and the terror of being pursued by government agents. She imbues her characters with her own struggle for survival, excellence, and world domination.
Only the dead bodies are imaginary.

Physical labor (cleaning house, shoveling manure, gardening) also helps, because it allows me to ruminate over what the characters want to be doing. A block usually means that part of my story isn't clear in my mind or I need to do a bit more extra research to get back into my zone. , Since I don't outline, it's important to have a good feel for my world and for the things my characters are doing.(less)

My older daughter is a millenial, and she and her college classmates are working their tails off. Since they are dependent on grants and have to keep their GPA up, they don’t even know what a frat house keg party *looks* like. When they don’t study, they hold part-time jobs or have freelance businesses on-line. This is one enlightening article.

Anne Hi Kate. Nice to hear from a fellow Minion who is enjoying my Tumblr! Yeah Copenhagen is great. I lived there the first 28 years of my life. It was nice to be able to go by bike anywhere. I live in the country now and here I depend on my car when I'm going to work or out shopping. I do enjoy the beautiful countryside and the clean air and water we have out here, so I don't miss life in the Capital much. Hugs from Anne aka Xhex of Qhuay ;)
