My name is Katrin “Kat” Hollister. I’m 27 years old and I have an MBChB degree (a medical doctor’s degree) from the UK. I’m a fantasy writer with free books posted primarily on Wattpad and I love art, video gaming, and baking. I’ll happily waste a day on DOTA2 or Final Fantasy games, doing sketches and paintings, or chasing after my three dogs and multiple exotic animals.
Welcome to the Frog Blog, where I blog about my experience of writing; review published and unpublished books, films, TV series, and video games; host contests and giveaways; offer sneak peeks of my works; and promote writers.
I started writing when I was about eleven, enamoured with adventure stories of young children by the likes of Enid Blyton, J.K. Rowling, and Philip Pullman. I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. That aspiration turned to being a chef, a fashion designer, a news reporter, a shopkeeper, and then went to medical school at my parents’ behest, completing my foundation training in the UK, all the while writing fiction as a hobby.
When I was thirteen, I moved onto writing fanfiction before playing with original fiction. My first attempt at writing a full-length novel was when I was fifteen, depicting three young assassins-in-training gifted with elemental powers and so far, their adventures are still sitting strong at 800k words and it’s probably my worst work to date, given the amateur skills at that point. My first completed novel, “Seeker”, was when I was sixteen years old, which is now rewritten six years after its completion.
