Kate is an author, marketer, journalist and photographer.


This is her blog.

She talks a lot about writing, – fiction and non-fiction for children.  Books and Shows. Exploring the South of France where she lives part of the year. Caring for the environment. Animals. Nature. Art. And anything else that inspires.

Marketing Work Experience:

After graduating with a degree in Business Management, Kate marketed food brands: Sharwood’s Curries, Cadbury Frozen Gateaux, Herta Frankfurters and Buitoni pasta sauces, to name but a few. She never went hungry.

When her children came along, she worked as a freelance press officer for charities and a writer for family and lifestyle magazines. She taught herself digital photography and photoshop.

Last year she organised the ticketing and publicity for the International School of Nice’s annual musical, West Side Story.
