Hello and welcome everyone!

I’m Katie and I’m a chick lit and cosy mystery writer. My debut novel will be out in September 2018 with HQ Digital!

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, books, gin, life, gin again etc. I hope you’ll join me!

So again I need to start with an apology. I haven’t posted in over a month and it’s all because life went completely mental! After getting my book deal and actually signing the contract (so exciting!) I’m now straight into revisions for my first book which is due to be published in September.
