Kate has been writing one thing or another since she was very small. Originally keen on journalism, her inclination to embellish the truth got in the way of a credible journalistic career. After twenty years as a copywriter, Kate still writes ads but prefers writing novels. In 2010, Kate published her first novel Mosquito Advertising: The Parfizz Pitch. She lives in Brisbane with her husband, their three kids, a dog, and – after rain – more than a few mosquitoes.
