Me Fail English? That’s Unpossible.
I’m Kylie Orr.
I’m asked at least once a week if I know another Orr. I married into the name, so I usually don’t.
Writing your own "About" page seems narcissistic. Yet when I view other websites, the "About" page is usually the one I click first. I'm not sure if it's voyeurism or simply an intrinsic desire to understand people.
I cringe on the inside, and sometimes groan loudly on the outside, when I read something that is poorly written. Writing is not for everyone, just like standing in front of a class full of teenagers teaching sex education is not for the weak-hearted. Luckily, we all have a day job that we're usually proficient at. This is mine.
I play with words in all sorts of ways - through feature articles and web content, in my new children's book series, in a commercial fiction novel I'm slaving away at and lots of to-do lists for my husband and four children. I write about subjects that I know well, and sometimes I write about things I don't - and learn fascinating things as I go. I'm perpetually inspired, moved and amused. I try to convey this in my writing.
If you'd like to know more about my career history, you'll find it within my writing services page.
