Author has written 15 stories for Sherlock.

Well for a start my name isn't Kate and I don't live at 221B Baker Street, although I'd very much like to.

Kate is the name of my main character, and the one I enjoy writing about the most, so I decided to borrow her name for a pen name. Just to be clear I'm certainly not writing about myself, in case anyone was worried! Kate is far more empathic, brave and broken that I am, but I created her as the perfect partner for Sherlock, which I like to think that she pretty much is, in my head anyway.

All of my writing on here has been related to Sherlock so far, although I do also write other things. I'm particularly interested in the psychology of Sherlock; what makes him the way that he is, and the whole is he a sociopath, does he have Aspergers, is he bipolar debate. I'm generally fascinated by what makes people tick, and Sherlock is much more interesting than most because he's such a complex character.

I do take anything that people put in reviews very seriously, and try to review if I can, because I know that it makes such a difference to my own impetus to write. However, I'm great believer in 'If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all,' so if you have constructive criticism for me then please don't hold back, but if you just want to tell me that you don't like my story and I can't write for toffee (which people have in the past) then I'd rather not know, thanks. It just bothers me and makes me want to stop writing. A 'shit sandwich' of good thing, bad thing, good thing is however absolutely welcomed!

The most I could ever hope for is that people enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoy writing them, and that maybe, just maybe it might make you stop and look at things in a different way. Please do let me know what you think.
