Here’s some info about Katya from her website www.katyamills.com
I am an Independent Author, Blogger, Novelist, and Social Worker. I like silence and intermittent noise. I like mostly sunshine between great storms. I feel good when devoted to something. I love a little ritual madness. I probably seem a little off. I hope I always am. I wanna keep my heart in the right place. I like to get in and out of self. I believe in freedom of self-expression, and I work very hard at my craft. I hope you take the time to read something I wrote. I try and keep the language fresh, and experiment. The one and only common element is my style, which cements the language.
Though I often keep to myself, I have been inspired by community. We can leave the splicers and spammers and false prophets to spin out their karma through nefarious or sorry undertakings. Let them be common and transparent. I try and be nice and practice loving kindness, but not at the expense of honesty. My prayers go out to anyone who perpetrates ill will, online or off.
Inspire me, inspire you. Please share and reshare my work, so to inspire others! All of my writings / photos / videos / songs are naturally copyrighted K. Some of my Youtube videos are attributed to Creative Commons. My opinions and expressions are meant to raise consciousness, generate energy and deepen understanding. And sometimes I just need to let go. – KatYa
