Journalism

Kate’s first job in journalism was as an editorial assistant at The Guardian, followed by a stint as deputy editor for the lifestyle section of London bible, Time Out magazine. There she had assignments that saw her racing reindeers in Lapland, going undercover in one of London’s premier department stores and gleaning writing tips (none-too subtly) during interviews with some of her favourite authors.

After becoming a freelancer, she left London behind and moved to the beautiful Cotswolds in order to write her first novel. Now at work on her second, a ghost story, she is visiting haunted pubs as part of her research. Magazine titles she has contributed to include Grand Designs Magazine, G2, British Airways High Life, Living etc, Real Homes, Period Living and the Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine. She has also contributed to numerous Time Out Guides and wrote chapters for Time Out travel books, ‘Seaside’ and ‘Countryside’.
