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!

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 literature 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...

One of the best around – Jenny Colgan AKA The Queen of Chick Lit

I don’t know if Queen of Chick Lit is actually Jenny Colgan’s title. She probably goes by Mrs Colgan, or something less dramatic. But to me, she is totally the queen of the genre. I await her books with childlike anticipation and once I’ve read it and realise I have to wait like, a year or two, until the next one comes out, I’m like the kid who opened all their Christmas...

Save our libraries!

A recent article in The Bookseller detailed the funding crisis facing libraries in the United Kingdom.  It really touched my heart. I loved visiting the library on rainy days and coming home with a book. When I was on maternity leave, before my baby arrived, I would go down once a week and get four or five books to see me through! And now, I take my children to the library as much as I can. They...

One of the best around – M C Beaton

I’ve been wanting to write an article on M C Beaton for a while. She is, without doubt, one of my favourite authors, for a number of reasons. But before I start, let me tell you a little bit about her, in case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know who she is.   Success – Can I get a little? M C Beaton, or Marion Chesney, which is her real name has written...

The ‘Bookseller from hell’? Really?

I read the best article in The Bookseller’s newsletter recently and I just had to write about it here. A bookshop owner from Yorkshire is charging his customers 50p entry and he also, according to the article, called one of them a ‘pain in the arse’. Now, I found this interesting for two reasons. Firstly, for what it says about the industry, and secondly, for the sheer enjoyment...
