My debut novel The Little Theatre on the Seafront is out now on Amazon and Kobo . 

Hello and welcome everyone!

I’m Katie, a writer of contemporary romance, published by Harper Collins/ HQ Digital. My lovely Seafront Series (The Little Theatre on the Seafront and Summer Season on the Seafront) are already available, and my stand-alone Christmas novel, Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage will be published in October 2019.

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. But I also like blogging about other random things like writing, gin, life … more gin! I hope you’ll join me!

Latest stories

Whoop! Whoop! I’ve been published!

So, despite the title, this isn’t a huge blog post in an, ‘aren’t I amazing, look at me!’ kind of way. This is just a little message to say that I’m thrilled to bits to have had a couple of short stories published. The links are in the Publications section of this site if you’re interested. I’ve found that I really like working on some short stories while...

One of the best – Ngaio Marsh

When we think about the Queens of Crime we tend to think of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L Sayers, but there is another who must never be forgotten and that is Ngaio Marsh. Success – Can I get a little? Ngaio was born in New Zealand and lived there for most of her life. Between 1934 and 1982 she wrote 32 novels containing Inspector Alleyn. If you haven’t read any of her novels, you...

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...

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!
