Writing has always been something I wanted to do but I never could seem to find a starting point.  I tried and failed many times and in the end assumed it was just one of those things that I was never meant to do.  Through my love of all things connected with Richard Armitage I discovered Fan Fiction and was inspired by the talent I found and wondered if maybe this was my way in. Nothing ventured nothing gained...

I hope that you enjoy reading my stories and poems. I hope that you can see, as I can, that the more I write, the better I become. At some point I'd like to revisit my earlier writing and re-edit as having completed a proofreading course I can now see a lot of areas that require improvement.

As mentioned, I am an admirer of Richard Armitage. I especially loved his portrayal of Lucas North in Spooks / MI5. And, it was Lucas who accompanied me on my first forays into writing. I have now set out on my own but he will never be far behind me!

"Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now." - Goethe

As well as writing, I have interests in history, genealogy, photography and anything that goes fast and makes a lot of noise - jets and cars usually!

I also have a blog - http://kathrynruthd.wordpress.com - and love to take photos - http://www.flickr.com/photos/kathrynruthd
