About Me

The incredibly short and inadequate story of a writer unleashing her creativity…

Raised on a wholesome diet of books, stories and fairy tales, Ekaterina Tretiakova (“Kat” to her friends) began writing in school instead of listening to her teachers. With a mother who worked as a librarian and a father who was addicted to reading, she quickly developed a love for language.

She earned her degree in Professional and Creative Writing from Deakin University, and finished at Honours level. In 2012, she was awarded the John Marsden Prize for her short story Poppies, which led to her first publication in Voiceworks Magazine.

She lives in South Gippsland, Australia, with her partner Graeme and their beautiful monster of a cat, Boo.
