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.
