Agent: Emily Glenister
Kathleen Whyman is an author, freelance journalist and columnist for Writer's Forum magazine. Kathleen wrote her first novel, The Ghost of Cripple Creek, when she was ten. Despite the accompanying illustrations, it was never published. Jackie magazine also rejected the short stories she submitted in her teens. Possibly because they were crap.
Undeterred by this, Kathleen always aspired to be a novelist, but got slightly sidetracked over the years by her career in journalism, children and Mad Men box sets. It was her eight-year-old daughter's words, "Stop talking about writing a book and just write one", that gave her the push she needed.
Kathleen lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and two daughters, one of whom is expecting 10% of any profits.
