Interview with Kate Russell © January 2011 

Q 1         When did you start writing?

I’ve always loved reading, but I really started writing at around 18.  I was studying at TAFE (Secretarial Studies I got an Honours Certificate!) and learning to type.  I found typing liberating as I’ve always hated my handwriting.  Sometimes I have trouble reading it myself!  And I can type pretty fast too much faster than I can write!

Q 2         What were your first writing efforts?

My friend, Isa, and I were at TAFE together.  We wrote these pretty terrible romantic short stories, starring us and heroes who looked suspiciously like Tom Selleck in Magnum P.I.!  We managed to include just about every cliché known to man.  I’ve still got the stories and they are pretty funny to look back on.
