Kate’s Recent Updates

“Children are like the zombies I once saw in a film at Dad's. We have to do as we're told and obey like our brains have got eaten.”

“We are what our families have made us. But sometimes you can escape that. You can close a door on it and walk into another room. This room is furnished differently.

Kate Hamer, The Doll Funeral

“They reminded me of birds gathering around and lifting up the broken one of their flock onto their shoulders, bearing it along.”
