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 HarperCollins/ HQ Digital. My lovely Seafront Series (The Little Theatre on the Seafront and Summer Season on the Seafront) and my stand-alone Christmas novel Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage is available now! There’s also my new series set in gorgeous Swallowtail Bay coming in 2020!

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!

Why it’s important to preserve your friendships

At the start of the year, I left my part-time office job to work from home and write. I haven’t missed the job, but I have missed my colleagues (a lot!). I met some amazing people there and I miss them. We catch up from time to time but we’re all busy and it isn’t as often as we would like. I don’t know how many of you guys out there are stay at home parents, or work from home, but if, like 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 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...

Get me my mojo back!

Help! I desperately need some in getting back into this whole work routine! The kids went back to school last week so I had that week off to get them back into their routine of getting up, dressed and ready for school, lunch boxes made, blah blah blah! That was hard enough and now I’m struggling to get back into my writing routine. I’ve been doing everything possible not to write...

Remembering Jane Austen

I’ve been writing this post for about two hours now. In between shoving washing in the machine and then the tumble dryer, and walking the dog, it’s taken me far longer than it should, which is really frustrating as Austen is one of my favourite topics to talk about. 200 Years and still grieving! On 18 July it will be 200 years since Austen’s death and yet she is still one of the...

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...

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!
