Half term holidays are fast approaching and as much as I love this time of year of cuddling the kids snuggled under blankets and drinking ridiculous hot chocolates covered in whipped cream and marshmallows, there are times when life gives you an endless to-do list.   The school holidays might be a break for the kids but the chances are it isn’t for the mums, dads and carers out there...

Back to School!

I love this time of year! Autumn is without doubt my favourite season, particularly this year after such a long hot summer. I love that feeling of a new school year full of opportunity and promise and luckily, my kids do too.   The other thing I love about it is that I can sneakily buy myself new pens and notebooks when I’m shopping for the kids back to school supplies! Come on, who...

My top 5 favourite ways to dress up your gin and tonic

Literary gifts for the writer (or reader) in your life!

You can keep your expensive designer gear, you can keep your flowers and boxes of chocolates (okay, maybe not the chocolates), and you can even keep your fancy handbags, but the one thing I am a total sucker for is a literary gift.

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!
