Hello, my name is Kat Hartwig. My main focus at the moment is writing my young adult fantasy novel, which should hopefully be done this year, but I also make sure to find time for my other hobbies. That’s where this website comes in.
I have been writing for the past ten years, but only got serious about it a few years ago. I recently signed up with a book coach so I can finally get the push I need to finish my novel. Honestly, I love books. I converted one of my spare bedrooms into a library just so I could fit my massive collection, which is currently over 700 books and growing. My goal with writing my novel is to give other people the wonder and excitement of reading a good book that other authors have given me my entire life. I want people to get lost in the worlds I create and escape from reality for a while.

My other main hobby is playing board games, which I do at least once a week. Over the years, I’ve probably played a few hundred different ones. I’m lucky to have friends who love board games just as much as I do so between all of us, our collection is pretty large. Since we all have different game preferences, I get to try a lot of games I normally wouldn’t buy myself. Gaming is such a great way to get people together and have fun.

I’m also a bit addicted to anime and manga. I try to watch five or six of the new anime coming out each season, but also like to scrounge for the wonderful shows I’ve missed over the years. If I really like a series, I tend to buy the manga for it as well so I can see the differences between the two. The manga section of the bookstore is a dangerous place though, with so much eye candy in book form, that I’ve gotten into a few series that don’t have an anime series yet.
Basically, I’m just an overall geek and proud of it!
