ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Author. Illustrator. Cat Lady.
Kylie Leane is the author of The Dynasty of Earth and Stars and its expanded universe.
She lives in a little cottage, with her pet cats, Winter and Charcoal, and enjoys spending time in her garden, going for long walks, watching anime, playing a good game, and curling up by the fire in winter.
She hopes to someday expand KML Publishing – for making beautiful books and bringing stories to life is one of her greatest passions in life. Being dyslexic does cause some trouble, and self-publishing is one mountain after another, but the reward of telling stories is worth all the hassle.
My writing life is like a rainbow cake – layer upon layer.
The first layer was compiling the church news-letter. It was illustrated, and newsy.
No church news-letter was ever like it.
Then came the journalistic layer. Great heights were reached with an article in the Women’s Weekly and working as a journalist for the local newspaper, The Transcontinental. There were farming and gardening magazines included in that layer.
The biography layer came next. Three biographies were self-published. Several other short biographies written. It is so interesting and necessary to record people’s stories for history’s sake.
Like cream between the layers I practised the art of short story writing.
The present layer is blogging. I have a blog site and it covers my writing life from short stories, journalistic articles, photography, and anything that demands to be written and read.
I love this writing life.
