The Big Bad Wolf, a Cosy Chat with
YA Romance Author, Anna Katmore
I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun. I grew up in Vienna – not by free will but because my parents decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. I. Hated. The. City. Everything about it. So right after graduation I moved back to the country side, where I settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop. (The laptop came first!)
I’ve been a storyteller all my life. Already in kindergarten, I came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. My teacher back then called me a liar. Today, I call it the cornerstone of my writing career.
People always told me you can’t make a living with being an author. After my first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, I knew I could do anything if only I never stopped dreaming.
That’s also part of what I teach my sutdents in writing workshops today. Always dream big! If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.
Some personal stuff:
I love everything that is labeled Disney, and if it’s pink, all the better. My patronus is a wolf and my wand’s the broken twig of an apple tree, 10 inch, but it does the job. Glitter on my shoes is a must, though I don’t care for the glass slippers. Cinderella’s ball gown? Heck, anytime!
How did Riley and Jack come calling?
That is a very thrilling story. Let me start with saying: I was in a roleplay game. It was on Facebook and about fairy tales. I picked Red Riding Hood as my character and when I did that, something very strange happened. I felt an energy stroking over my skin and whispering in my ear. I think that was the first contact with Riley, really. I picked her, she picked me, and suddenly all those beautiful pictures started rolling in my head. Jack wasn’t there yet, back then.
So, the roleplay game went on for like two months, and when it was over, I thought for a moment about writing a similar story down, because Riley was still so loud in my head. But other things came in between and so I abandoned the thought pretty fast.
It was last year in winter, when I decided to take a really long break from writing for reasons of exhaustion, pressure and frustration with parts of the job, that Riley came back. She came two days after I announced my retreat from the writing world. She was really loud again. And this time, she brought a friend.
In my head, I saw a huge wolf sitting on a clearing in the woods. And his eyes looked so very familiar. Still, it took me a long time writing to realize that Jack, the wolf, has been with me in a very special way for years. I just never really noticed. Until I started writing things down.
So yeah, that’s how the two of them made themselves known to me. I’m smiling right now, just because of the memory.

Energy Reading for June 2018
Click above for audio.
There is the potential for great change and transformation in June, if you are able to harness the power of your own thoughts and manifest the energy that leads you down the path of your true desires.
Mental energy is high this month, and with it comes the possibility of great manifestation, but also of great self-sabotage. Where you go with your thoughts, your fears, your feelings is up to you. Yes, you are subject to the things that are taking place around you, but how you interact with them on a daily basis, how you interact with them through your mind and your energy is entirely within your control.
This mental interaction can create a fog that acts like a barrier between you and the world you want to manifest. Creation energy is high this month, the ability to begin or complete something that has been long in the works is high. But this fog that hangs between you and completion is no small thing.
The temptation is to see this as an awful time, to see the obstacles that keep coming your way as all-consuming and insurmountable. Instead try, if you can, to see the good around you, and to recognise that it is your choice where you focus.
There is real potential for growth, for development, indeed for real world success at this time. There is great possibility for the new journey you have been seeking for some time. Embrace it. Welcome it in. Acknowledge the blockages that seek to derail you, honour them, and then take away their power to control you. You can give focus to your grief, then give focus to your dreams without one sabotaging or undermining the other.
This is a time of conscious choice, of accepting the flow of life that comes your way, whilst stepping into your power and acknowledging your own part in shaping your destiny.

The Curious Mystic
Would you like to come on an adventure? I’m going exploring through the world of the mystic, the psychic, and the dreamer. Where I’m going everything is energy, and we can learn to work with it to develop a new sense of ourselves and the world around us.
As a Psychic Channel, I’ve spent many years working with energy and learning about myself, others and the universe. I don’t mean book learning, although I’ve done that too. I’m talking about things you can experience here and now, every day of your life.
