Katie Ward Book and Novel

Katie Ward - Author


Katie Ward was born in Somerset in 1979. She has worked in the public and voluntary sectors, including at a women’s refuge and for a Member of Parliament. She took a career break in order to write her debut novel, after being inspired by a book of portraits of women and girls reading.

In 2007, Katie Ward met Hilary Mantel through a work colleague and Hilary took a keen interest in her work.

When Girl Reading was complete, Hilary recommended it to her agent, who soon had a number of publishers bidding for it.

Katie lives in Suffolk with her husband.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.
