A different kind of writing blog: Roz Kay

RozHello, and welcome to my blog. It’s mostly conversations with writers: authors, poets, and playwrights. I sometimes include “guest posts” from writers on the publication of their books, and I maintain a page of writing tips.

My debut children’s novel, The Keeper of the Stones, is published in March 2020 by Hayloft Books, illustrated by Kelsea Rothaus.

You can follow me on Twitter @_RozKay and on Instagram as _rozkay. I post short book reviews on Goodreads and you can find me here.

I’ve had several literary short stories published under the name Roz DeKett. They appear in the Fish Anthology 2017, the Nottingham Literary Review, and more. I’ve gathered these pre-published stories into a small collection of dark tales, available here.

Thank you for taking a look. And if you like what you read here, please share the link!
