Kate worked for many years managing services for people who are marginalised by society; her work has taken her into prisons, mental health hospitals and alongside the homeless. She currently works in education and holds a first-class degree in English Literature, in addition to qualifications in creative writing, children's mental health and teaching. Kate lives in a small coastal town just outside of Brighton with her husband and sons.
Her debut, To Keep You Safe was released last year and she will read from her new novel, What I Did. Kate is happy to do readings and take questions on writing, her novels and her inspiration. She is also available for workshops.
