A graduate in Philosophy from Hull University, Katharine spent a number of years working in the charity and IT sectors but had a long-held ambition to be a writer. Everything changed in 2009 when Katharine became a mother, was made redundant (you can draw your own conclusion as to whether those two events are related), set up as a freelance publishing professional, and completed her first title,Writing the Town Read.
Katharine’s freelance career has since developed into setting up Heddon Publishing – working with other independent authors. She has also written and published four further novels since Writing the Town Read: Looking Past, Amongst Friends, A Second Chance Summer and After the Sun (Books One and Two of the Coming back to Cornwall series), plus one guide for indie authors: How to Run a Free Kindle Promotion on a Budget.
Katharine has two children but just one husband and lives in Shropshire, UK.
