Kate is the best-selling author of four comic fiction novels – That Slippery Slope, Famous, Making Lemonade and Next of Kin. She gets a kick out of writing books that make women stop and smile, and even laugh out loud. Prior to becoming an author Kate has been a writer for television commercials, a burger bar owner, and an event manager. Kate is also a regular writer for New Zealand’s highest rating prime-time soap Shortland Street. When she's not writing Kate can be found attempting to raise her children, talking shite with her girlfriends, or taking deep breaths with a glass of wine in hand. Kate lives in Auckland with her family.
