About Me

I’m Kaia, I’m officially closer to 40 than 30 (!) and I live with a very bossy cat, a dresser full of fabric, a bookcase full of yarn and a lot of buttons.

Currently I’m working on a novel about teenagers, football, Tumblr, queer issues and rural Scotland. My second project is about Swedish folklore. I quite like them both, as does my metaphorical desk drawer.
