Hi, my name is Cate Kirby and I'm a writer and translator (Spanish to English or vice versa), I was born and live in Argentina. I decided to become a member of the Stephen King page a few months back but actually never wrote in the forum, it was on my to-do list... then in September I received an e-mail from the MessageBoard congratulating me on my birthday! So it was a reminder I was connected to the page. And here we are, already 2014... The reason I became a member is because last year a friend sent me Stephen's book "On Writing", and I wanted to thank Stephen for taking the time to write and publish this book: it is the BEST and most practical book I've ever read on our profession. It inspired me as well as gave me many useful tips. Truly a good book for writers. Strangely, I am not a reader of Stephen's fiction as I don't like reading 'scary' stories. No judgement at all, it's just knowing what I enjoy. This feels a little like writing into a void, but take my advice if you're a writer, and get that book!
