Kate Walker grew up in West Yorkshire, in a home where books were vitally important and she read anything she could get her hands on. She can’t remember a time when she wasn’t scribbling away at something and wrote her first ‘book’ when she was eleven – most of it during lessons at school.
On leaving school, she went to the University College of Wales Aberystwyth where she studied English and Librarianship and met her husband who is also a writer.
Kate Walker has an MA in English from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth and worked as a Children’s Librarian before concentrating on writing full-time when her son was young. In 1984, The Chalk Line was published by Harlequin Mills & Boon. She has been writing for them ever since in the (Modern Romance line) and her novels have been published in over thirty-five countries and more than twenty different languages worldwide.
She is also the author of the 12 Point Guide to Writing Romance, which gives an introduction to the essential skills needed to succeed as a writer of Romance. She runs writing days, workshops and weekend courses on writing romantic fiction.
Kate lives in Lincolnshire and joined the RNA in 1993
