Kate Birds portrait (C) Chris O Donovan Cropped

I’m Kate,  and I love to write, read, cook, walk on the beach and surf the web. So make yourself at home in my online home. Along with my Brighton reviews blog, The Brighton Belle.

My 5:2 Diet Books have their own site, but stick around here to peek at my latest novels, discover my fun writing tips, and – new for 2016 – 1a free Make Your Dreams Come True e-book, outlining the 5 fun steps I use every single year to help me do the things I love in life. I’ve used it to move countries, change career, and write 16 books.

You can also download your FREE 40-page Fiction special – with stories, interviews and a cocktail recipe! – by signing up to my newsletter…


And you can always say hello to me on Twitter and Facebook: they’re my other favourite places.
