Hello and welcome everyone!

I’m Katie, a writer of funny contemporary romances, published by HarperCollins/ HQ Digital. The first book in my new series, Spring Tides at Swallowtail Bay, is published in March with two more books to follow this year.

If you don’t want to wait for those, there’s also my lovely Seafront Series (The Little Theatre on the Seafront (shortlisted for the Katie Fforde Debut Romantic Novel of the Year 2019) and Summer Season on the Seafront. And if you love a Christmas novel, there’s my stand-alone book Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage.

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 chick-lit then stick around! We’ll have lots to discuss. But I also like blogging about other random things like writing tips, gin, life and … 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 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...

I LOVE CHRISTMAS! And yes, I know I’m using shouty letters (sorry about that), but it’s because I absolutely, completely, 100%, totally LOVE Christmas! I love everything about Christmas. I love the anticipation, (which is why our tree goes up on the first of December), I love all the food and booze; I mean, when else can you legitimately drink prosecco at ten o’clock in the...

Lost Words – Let’s bring ’em back!

It’s time for our regular monthly post about a lost word!   You know the type of thing, those poor lost words that sit in 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 They are the spices of the literary world, but I refuse to let them sit in a cupboard and be ignored until they go out of date! Let’s bring them back! So...

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!
