• The only tears I want to fall after reading a story are tears of joy.
• I like books that aren’t too predictable and with strong character development.
• The whole novel had a good pace and was professionally written. Really satisfying.
If so, I’m Kate Harriet and I write uplifting, cosy reads for fans of romance- with warm, loveable characters and a heroine you’ll want to root for.
As an author and ghostwriter I have spent years writing for the kind of reader who loves an exciting read, set in picturesque and idyllic settings with just a splash of romance thrown in.
If that’s you then click today to start reading fun, feel-good books and short stories that will leave you smiling from ear to ear.
What inspires you to write?
I have always enjoyed romance books and rom coms starring a feisty heroine, a determined hero and sparkling dialogue.
This has inspired me to write my own romantic novels and meet-cute short stories.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
My favourite author is Jane Austen as her books feature heroines from the meek, the meddlesome to the more spirited who stand their ground against society's rules and sometimes in spite of overwhelming odds.
However my latest favourite is Alexander Dumas, as I can never get to sleep till I find out what happens next in his ultimate novel of revenge: The Count of Monte Cristo.
Tell us about your writing process.
As an outliner, I normally create a very bare bones outline in Notepad before I transfer it into Word. This allows me the flexibility of discovering the story as I write, whilst still having a guideline so I don't have to face a blank page.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
As my characters tend to drive the plot I end up listening more than talking. They never allow me to finish a chapter or a book quite as I planned!
What advice would you give other writers?
Learn as much as you can about writing in your particular genre and then do what works for you.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I wrote over thirty books for other publishers and suddenly thought why not publish my own books as well.
Self-publishing is great for exploring genres that traditional publishers tend to ignore.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Whenever anyone declares that publishing is dead, it always manages to adapt and resurrect itself. I am personally looking forward to holonovels from Star Trek.
What genres do you write?: romance, sweet romance, contemporary romance, holiday romance, small town romance
