Biography: Katherine’s first novel, The Crimson Ribbon, was published by Headline in 2014, a month after her 40th birthday, so she only just scraped in to the Prime Writers. Her second, The Silvered Heart, was published in 2015. Before becoming a writer Katherine had several careers, including spells in film production, the charity sector and education. Most recently she worked for a national examination board where she led the development and launch of the UK’s first A Level qualification in Creative Writing. She is Editor of Historia magazine – the online publication of the Historical Writers’ Association and is a member of The History Girls, where she blogs on the 11th of each month. From September 2016, she will be a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Sheffield University. She lives in Manchester and is working on her third novel.
