Kate Charlton

Kate originally comes from the small mining town of Consett, County Durham, but now lives in Middlesbrough with her partner, Karen. She's been an avid reader since discovering books in "infant school" and now reads everything from Vietnam War narratives to Lesfic.


When she's not stuck in front of a laptop, Kate spends her life as a qualified nurse, managing a dedicated team of women and men who dedicate their lives to others every day. Human nature is what makes her tick and she considers herself lucky to be in such a privileged position, caring for others.


Since she was a teenager, Kate has written everything, from poetry to plays and novels, though this is her first foray into real writing since qualifying as a nurse twelve years ago. Fill her full of caffeine and she'll deliver anything you like! The spare time she has is spent indulging in cooking, family, playing bass guitar and watching a good film.

Circumstance

To mend a broken heart after losing her wife to cancer, Doctor Helen Kennedy decides to get her life back on track, starting with a vacation on the Isle of Rhodes. Her last intention was to have her life turned around when she meets solicitor, Kathy Harland. A holiday romance soon develops, but once back in England, past haunts resurface, causing both women to question whether they’re prepared to continue their relationship. 


With both women not letting their guards down, deep secrets remain the foundation of their future. Now the question is, can they survive the very thing that threatens to destroy them?
