Hey guys! So as promised, I’ll be posting a short story on one Saturday every month… Or in this case, part of a short story.

It’s such a pleasure featuring Kat on my blog today! She’s the author of the young adult speculative series, Toch Island Chronicles (which you can read here on Amazon or here on B&N). She’s popped in for a fun interview, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
