Writing Portfolio

As a Dutchie born in South Africa, Kathryn enjoys writing about the Netherlands from the perspective of having grown up in an entirely different world. Regardless of where she is, Kathryn’s love for dogs remains constant. When not striving to play with or narrate a dog’s every move in public, Kathryn is trying new chocolates to fuel her addiction. Besides critiquing pop culture, art and literature, Kathryn fancies painting Disney side-kicks in watercolour.
During my University Days (said with a sigh of nostalgia), I descovered my passion when working as the News Editor for Die Matie. This was Stellenbosch University's official campus newspaper, and to say that I had a blast during my time serving is an understatement.

Bitter Pills to Swallow

Book Challenge

Books to me are like fireworks to Gandalf’s staff, like singing animals to Disney, like societal angst to Orwell.

Novels have painted the pages of my narrative with intriguing characters and colourful places. They have shown me what reality can be.

My story just wouldn’t read the same without them.

Below is a 30-day book challenge in which I dedicate every day of a month to a novel which impacted me (to put it mildly).
