Thanks for stopping by. This is the place where you can find some of my writing – excerpts from my books, short stories, poetry and links to some of my music too. It’s also the place for all my news about upcoming events.
It’s a busy old time in my world, I’m very happy to say. I’ve been working on a whole lot of different projects and you can have a look at some of the results on these pages.
I am completely obsessed with the characters and the landscapes of my major work in progress: “Beyond the Half-dead Stream” – it’s one of those stories that won’t leave me alone until it’s written. Here‘s a little taster.
This book was inspired by the artwork of my long-time collaborator, the amazing artist Cordula Marks Venters. We are also working on another beautiful (and very different) book together and it is such a lot of fun – who doesn’t love dinosaurs? Have a little sneaky peak at “The World is so Exciting” here . We had a brilliant time recently, introducing these characters to a very excited group of kids and their parents at a fabulous literacy event in a local school.
I’m also delighted to say that one of my stories has been selected by a wonderful new site – Hold My Purse – you can read it here.
Another project of mine can be previewed here: Free Your Creativity – Wings to Fly. Its working title was Ελενθερία, the Greek word for freedom and it’s all about freeing up your imagination and breaking free from creative and artistic blocks. It’s something pretty different for me and it was a lot of fun to write (and >gulp< illustrate) and I’m happy to say you can start reading it now, here. Watch this space for more news on this – it is building up into a really energising project for use in schools and other educational areas.
Please do have a look at some of the other pages of my website – there’s a lot of reading and plenty of stories, poetry and even some music. Let me know what you think of it – the best way to contact me is through Twitter @KVentersMarks – I’d be delighted to hear from you!
