Kay Sexton Book and Novel

Kay Sexton - Author


Kay Sexton left school with no discernable qualifications and has had a plethora of jobs ranging from glamour model, mortician’s assistant, dental receptionist, chambermaid and nudist camp agony aunt. But eventually she had to enter the real world and chose to become a charity administrator.
This worthy path was entirely derailed in 2003 when she was invited to write a short story about trees for a charity anthology, the story was never used but she needed to produce some return for the two days leave that her trustees had given her to write it, so she sent it to a magazine. It was accepted. Somewhat sceptical, she wrote another (in her lunch break) and emailed it to a different magazine. It too, was accepted. Three weeks later she handed in her notice, telling the charity’s trustees that she was off to become a writer. Since that fateful day Kay has been a prolific writer and a finalist for several awards including the Sunday Times Short Story Award 2010.

Sue Baker's view... I applaud Kay Sexton’s down-to-earth approach – she’s not afraid to point out the downsides to allotments. You can be given the worse plot with weeds at head-height, brambles that could kill and earth so poor...
