About Kate


Kate loves books, but this is proof that Christmas books have always brought year round enjoyment.


Talking to animals started early too and perhaps this encounter planted the seed for the character Clara in Sharing Christmas.



Her ballet debut as Black-eyed Susan was a not a particularly auspicious beginning but she was bitten by the performing bug nevertheless and it is something she enjoyed throughout her school years and with some later professional work, just for fun.

Not only writing but traveling, teaching, managing, lecturing, and working with young singers has given Kate years of wonderful experiences that some people call work. She has always said that she is serious about her work, but has more fun when she doesn't take herself too seriously!
