About

The writer at work. Honest.

So, firstly, my name is Kim, you don’t have to call me K. M. or anything like that. But kimwatt.com was already taken, and writing under my middle name (Maree) meant I felt like I should be writing romance, probably of the bodice-ripper variety. Which is fine if you write it, but my stories tend to have more dragons, less bodice-ripping.

I’ve been the one in the corner with a book all my life – as a kid hiding at my parent’s parties, as an adult trying to pretend I was just checking out other people’s bookshelves, not actively trying to avoid talking to people. I started writing short stories before I could do joined up writing (not that my handwriting’s improved much), and my one constant in life has been books and writing. They keep me sane, amused, and happy, and I’ve learned plenty between the pages.

I’m currently working on a YA trilogy that has cats in it (among other magical beasts), and will be sharing excerpts and unrelated short stories on here as I go along, so please check back regularly to see what’s here, or pop by social media to see what’s happening.

I’ve moved about a fair bit over the years, but currently I live in France with a demanding cat and a very understanding boyfriend. I hope you enjoy what you find here, and please get in touch with comments, advice, story requests (yes, I take them gladly), suggestions and cat pictures.

  1. Maree is such a pretty name!

    I would like a story about a dragon who’s afraid of fire and heights.

    And one about a cat called Layla who leads a cat revolution.

    1. Aw, thank you! I’ve never liked it – when we were kids my cousin and I wanted to swap middle names, because we preferred each others. Oddly enough, our parents never went for it…

      I love the idea of a dragon that’s scared of fire and heights! I’m definitely putting that one in my magic story idea pot. The Layla one, though – that may be a little to close to the truth. She may not let me do it. Or I might do it and unexpectedly vanish…
