So, I’m writing this on the train home, having just finished my very first author talk and I am absolutely buzzing! It was an amazing experience and, surprisingly, one I actually enjoyed!

Lost Words – Let’s bring ’em back!

As a lot of this blog is about writing, I wanted to write a regular article on my favourite forgotten words. You know the type of thing, those poor lost words that sit at the back of our minds, gathering dust, having been discovered years ago in literary classics like Dickens, or Austen. They are the spices of the literary world, but I refuse to let them sit in a cupboard and be ignored until...

Self-care for beginners!

I don’t know about you but I’ve seen loads of stuff floating around the internet about self-care. I’ve kind of dipped in and out, because like most people, where’s the time? But sometimes self-esteem can take a nose dive and I decided that, for May, after getting through edits and the Easter holidays, I might take a closer look. There’s loads of self-care challenges...

My typical writing day

I’ve been asked recently about what my typical day looks like so I thought I’d share it here in a blog post and give you a bit of a rundown. Believe me, it’s not normally as exciting as attending the Romantic Novelists Association Awards and staying in swanky hotels! In reality it’s much more mundane and hectic! My day starts at 6am when my hubby gets up for work...

Katie Ginger

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!
