My debut novel The Little Theatre on the Seafront is out now on Amazon and Kobo . 

Hello and welcome everyone!

I’m Katie and I’m a chick lit and cosy mystery writer. My debut novel The Little Theatre on the Seafront was published in September 2018 by Harper Collins, HQ DigitalUK!

There’s a couple of links above, but if you’re not in the UK, all the links are on the Publications page so please hop on over and grab a copy! I promise you’ll love it!

If you love funny, warm chicklit then stick around! We’ll have lots to discuss. And if you enjoy witty cosy mysteries, please check out my short stories – Mrs Walker and the Lady in the Laundry, and Mrs Walker and the Poisonous Punch published by Mystery Weekly, and Murder Upstairs, published by Zimbell Publishing in their anthology ‘Why?’.

Here’s where I’ll be blogging about various things – writing, gin, life … more gin! I hope you’ll join me!

The first thing you need to know about me is, I like gin. Lots and lots of gin.
I live in the South East of England in a lovely little town by the sea and spend my time working, running around after my kids, walking our King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit, and writing!

I love history and have a Master’s degree, but have also been lucky enough to work in various castles and museums over the years. I’ve yet to get one of them into a story though – I really must try harder!
