Kate Birds portrait (C) Chris O Donovan CroppedHello, I’m Kate – I live by the sea in Brighton and write novels  and 5:2 recipe and health books – I also help train others in writing & creative idea development.

Stories are in my blood –  I started as a journalist and TV reporter/producer, before switching to books. I write about the things I’m fascinated by, from how to eat well and feel healthy to fiction that makes us scared and novels that make us happy!

You can sample both my fiction and non-fiction for free. Download my free 24-page guide, Make this year your best ever, plus an e-book fiction special. Just sign up below.

Keep in touch on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram: and don’t forget my sister site focusing on 5:2, healthy eating and recipes (you’ll find freebies over there, too).
