Kate Mallinder grew up in the Midlands and studied Philosophy of Science with Maths at Leeds University. She then temped, filed, made tea, worked in a call centre and set up her own business but never really knew what she wanted to do when she grew up.
When she was 37 she remembered what she wanted to do when she was 9, so she started writing and hasn’t stopped.
She lives with her husband and four children and is fiercely territorial about her writing desk.
