Kate Bailward (aka Katja) is a cat-loving, trifle-hating Englishwoman in Sicily.
Before becoming an EFL teacher in 2009, she spent 10 years working as an actor. This fueled her love of storytelling, and started her on the road to narrative writing. Since 2004 she has had various different blog incarnations, all previous versons of which have now been deleted for being embarrassingly bad. She hopes to do better with this one.
She is a regular writer for Charming Italy.com and one sixth of the Italy Blogging Roundtable team. She also writes about food at her cookery blog, Quasi Siciliana, and (infrequently) about non-Italian subjects at KateBailward.com.
