MEET THE ACTUAL KAT
So, guess what?
I’m not actually that into cats.
I’m good at words. Writing them, saying them, playing with them. I don’t know anyone who likes the sound of their own voice as much as I do, which is probably handy as being a freelance writer involves endless self-promotion and leaves precious little room for modesty.
After a decade in London working in-house as a copywriter for lots of cool brands, I moved to Devon in 2018. I claimed the move was to accommodate the writing of my first novel, but in reality it was more fuelled by my life-long desire to work from home in my pyjamas all day. Plus, my husband wanted a dog and there wasn’t room for one in our tiny 1-bed in Battersea.
But the novel did get written. And I do work from home (often in my pyjamas) in a little office we built at the end of the garden. I can see the sea from my desk and Keith the sausage dog dozes under my desk. It’s nice work if you can get it.
WHEN I'M NOT WRITING COPY
Fancy a Saucy Short?
Now with its own loyal following, Saucy Shorts offers tea-break-long stories about love, lust, betrayal and friendship, released every week at 12pm on Friday and available on Spotify, iTunes and anywhere else you like to listen. They’re often sexy (clue’s in the name) but not graphic, so they’re probably safe to pass on to your mum but possibly not safe to play aloud in the office (unless your office is seriously cool).
