Kai, or as she’s more commonly known as, OI You, owns the server, and donated the hosting, domains, and manages the day to day site along with Joy and Laura. She’s also currently (October 2017 – Present) the community manager, and looks after all social media channels bar the newsletter and shared custody of the Facebook page, along with Laura and Joy.
An Edinburgh native, she’s 39 just after the project starts, will have completed her 15th year as Nanowrimo ML as her book is released on the 7th, and under a pen name or two, may take part again. She writes under the pen names D Kai Wilson-Viola, Kai Viola, Donna Wilson (her real name), Kairis Viola, Sabrann Curach, River Harlequinn and her sister Jo-Jo Harlequinn, and Sabrann Curach. She’s been writing since she was four, and published since she was 17 as a ghost writer, hence the pen names.
Mother two two teenagers, inefficient herder to two cats, beloved to a coder and generally a bit unmissable in certain environments, Kai is happiest not needing to stick her head above the parapet and just creating. She’s currently undertaking a second Undergraduate degree, this time in Social or Forensic Psychology, after graduating in 2011 with a BAhons in Creative Writing. After this undergraduate degree she wants at least one PHD 🙂
When not writing, she can often be found gaming, taking photos, reading, playing games, coding apps and other items, playing more games, playing tabletop games, playing card games…she writes more than anything else though, so mostly, she’s found glued to a keyboard.
