About Nut Press
Hello! I’m Kathryn Eastman and I’m a freelance writer and EFL tutor. The NUT Press is my online home.
I was born in Germany to a Welsh father and a Scottish mother, so that makes me confused/Celtic/British/still unable to speak fluent German. I’ve lived in England, Germany, Greece and the United States and am currently based in South Wales, U.K.
About this site
I have a range of interests, so at some point you’ll no doubt read something about books, both reading and writing them; chocolate; writing news, competitions, events and prizes; chocolate; writing; rugby; squirrels; chocolate; music and photography, but other random topics might crop up in the mix.
Why’s it called the NUT Press? Well, I’m lucky enough to have landed myself a squirrel muse (I know! Don’t you wish you were me?) who’s more often than not more of a hindrance. His name’s Squizzey and if you’d like to check him out, he has his own blog: SquizzBlog or you can follow him on Twitter or Facebook. Anyway, the NUT Press seemed an obvious choice for that reason and the fact that having a range of interests seemed to be akin to there being an assortment of different nuts.
I review books that I simply enjoy reading and want to tell you about. If I didn’t enjoy a book or it wasn’t for me, I generally won’t review it. Apart from anything else, I read a lot and don’t get around to reviewing all of the books I enjoyed.
I’ve written articles, poems and short stories, some of which have been published in journals, magazines and newspapers. You can read a sample on this site. I’m currently editing my second novel while I try to find the first one a good home.
So, thanks for stopping by and reading and I would love to hear from you if you have any comments or questions. Just fill in the Contact Me form below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
