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!

Exciting News!

Sorry I’ve been quiet and didn’t post last week but I have some super exciting news… I’ve signed a two-book deal with Harper Collins’ digital imprint HQ Digital UK (@HQDigitalUK). I honestly could not be more excited. My first book will be published in September 2018 and the second one in 2019 and it has been completely life changing for me. I’ve achieved a lifelong ambition! Since I was a little...

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...

What’s Your Writing Process

Sorry for not having posted anything for the last month, guys, but I was hit by this horrible flu that’s going around and was so, so poorly for ages. I’m now back to mostly full health now though and trying to get back on track. Thanks for sticking with me! The trouble with being poorly is that my whole schedule has gone completely out of the window and I wasn’t really sure what to write about...

Frankenstein Is 200 Years Old!

(Or is it more considering all his body parts were different ages?) January 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, a classic in English literature and studied in schools throughout the UK. It’s a novel known throughout the world but rather than focus on analysing the text in this blog post, I wanted to focus a little more on the woman and how she came...

New Year, New Gear (And Goals!)

Hold up! 2018 is here! How can that be? Last year was my first year of being pretty much a full time writer and it shot by in a flash. I had some short stories published, which was awesome and I’ve had some requests from publishers for my manuscript, which is equally awesome (I’m still waiting to hear but will update you when I do!). On reflection I consider it to be pretty successful but I want...
