In the evening time after my girls go to bed is when I sit down to write.

I loved writing the party scenes at the wedding which incorporated a lot more characters some of which were very funny.

Jane Eyre.

Do you have any tips for readers who are looking to become published writers?
It's all about perseverance.

Are you working on anything else at the moment and if so, can you tell us?
I'm actually about to begin the follow up story to Could It Be You based around my lead character Rachel Kane.

Thanks, Katie!
