Hello, I 'm Kate
I wrote terrible holiday diaries as a child, which my husband gets me to read out loud for our entertainment.
I’ve always loved writing but didn’t make the time while the children were growing up. In 2018 I enrolled on courses, attended webinars and conferences, and joined writing groups.
I have written two novels, although the first is pushed firmly to the back of a drawer. The second - a story about falling in love with the wrong person; set in New York and Ireland in 1911/12 - will be published 28 Feb 2023, with the help of the people at THE BOOK GUILD!
I write when I’m not cleaning and repairing horse rugs or doing the farm accounts. Man of the Woods, my farming husband of twenty-seven years (and usually to be found with a chainsaw and surrounded by logs) is one of my biggest supporters.
While I'm planning another novel, I also write short stories and was delighted that Fairlight Books wanted to publish 'The Projectionist', which you can read for free here!
"Frank hadn’t thought about killing anyone for forty years. Not since he’d closed his left eye and looked down the barrel of his Lee Enfield. But sitting in the dark, the projectors’ hum silenced forever, snapshots of an enemy halted gathered behind his eyelids like a gallery of police evidence."
