Welcome to our new feature Ask Kat, where each week we answer your questions. This week's question comes from Lorna Suzuki and was originally part of an interview for ALL KINDS OF WRITING.


What do you like to do when you're not writing?

The question is what don’t I do, really. Well first and foremost I create art, being that it’s my day job. I read a lot of books and manga and watch TV shows or movies and anime. I make cosplay, micro origami and miniature hand bound books. I take a jazz dance class once a week and perform in it’s two yearly shows. I’ve actually been in dance for the majority of my life. I also perform in the world famous historical re-enactment event The Great Dickens Fair every year. If you’re ever in the SF Bay Area during the winter holidays you should come check it out. Lastly my husband convinced me I should join their Pathfinder tabletop role playing game, so I’ll be starting that soon.
