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!

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!
