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!

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...

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!
