Halloween Fun!

Halloween is next week and I love it! We always have a little party with cool Halloween food and go trick or treating. And of course there’s messy pumpkin carving and a pumpkin spice latte for me! But this year I thought I’d do something a little different!   As my kids are now old enough to read and write on their own, I decided that we’d have a little Halloween story fun...

Putting yourself first is okay! Trust me!

Half term holidays are fast approaching and as much as I love this time of year of cuddling the kids snuggled under blankets and drinking ridiculous hot chocolates covered in whipped cream and marshmallows, there are times when life gives you an endless to-do list.   The school holidays might be a break for the kids but the chances are it isn’t for the mums, dads and carers out there...

My top 5 tips for writing cosy mysteries

Before I got my book deal to write contemporary romance with Harper Collins, HQ DigitalUK, I had some cosy mystery short stories published and I’m currently working on a series of cosy mystery novels (I’ll keep you updated on those when I have anything exciting to share!) So I thought I’d share some tips I’ve learned about writing cosy mysteries. Here are my top 5! Please...

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...

Why I Decided to Give Writing a Real Go

I’ve been putting off writing this post for a while, but it’s one I knew I was going to have to write eventually. I’ve wanted to share with you the real reason why I decided to give writing a go and as a natural sharer, this should have been easy for me. But it wasn’t. You see, I originally got back into writing after being redundant, which was fine. I wasn’t all...

Back to School!

I love this time of year! Autumn is without doubt my favourite season, particularly this year after such a long hot summer. I love that feeling of a new school year full of opportunity and promise and luckily, my kids do too.   The other thing I love about it is that I can sneakily buy myself new pens and notebooks when I’m shopping for the kids back to school supplies! Come on, who...

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!
