Kay Freeman is a true maverick, traversing innumerable mediums throughout the course of her career. She spent the first part of her career as a professional artist teaching full time at the college level and showing her art. She has an undergraduate degree from Moore College of Art & Design and an MFA from Vermont College.
Writing is but the latest embodiment of her electric impulses. She has always told stories - each color, line, and compositional element speaking to an experience, a longing, a confrontation of something within herself - her writing is simply those stories incarnated anew.
For the past two years, she has established a consistent writing practice, refined her skills, taking online courses at the Writing Studio, Catapult and with John Fox and reading numerous books on writing. See some of her suggestions under books to read on writing. She has written nine short stories, one Romance novel and completed a first draft for a second, and plans to have her first romance novel, Truth Moon, published in fall 2021.
She loves mystery and suspense. A devotee of Stephen King, Dean Koonz, and Mylo Carbia. Romance, especially the darker variety, is also a strong interest. Inspired by Skye Warren, L.J. Shen, Willow Winters, K. Webster, and Clarissa Wild.
Like her paintings, her work seeks to explore the taboo, the unorthodox, the stones left unturned. They’re not for the faint of heart, but if you’re not afraid to consume art that forces one to self-examine, then climb aboard. You’re in for a ride you won’t soon forget. She believes that Romance is about transformation, the transformation of the hero and heroine for the better and the reader too. Reading a good Romance can change and heal, taking you on a journey to worlds you’ve never imagined.
A novel or a story should provide a satisfying emotional experience for the reader. Not necessarily a happy one. Your emotions should be engaged, intensified and at the end you should receive a certain release.
'Don’t bore the reader' is my mantra.
