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.

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.
