Head for the Edge, Keep Walking – novel

The resilient but bewildered main character embarks on a laugh (and cry) out-loud search for meaning amongst the bars, workplaces and NHS clinics of Glasgow. At once funny and tender, Head for the Edge, Keep Walking is a clear-sighted look at a generation of women that was told they could ‘have it all’.

The revised 2nd edition will launch with Little, Brown in 2019.

“One of my favourite novels of recent years. Incredibly insightful, funny and poignant.”
Helen Sedgwick, author of The Comet Seekers and The Growing Season

It’s a Man I Need – story

A warm portrait of a straight-talking couple who commit to not getting married.

This story is from Kate’s in-progress collection, Kissing Lying Down.

“These humorous stories hit hard in places. It’s a spiky collection that delves deep into what it takes to strap on a smile through early-middle-aged failure and make human connections in the modern age.”
Laura Waddell, publisher and writer – www.lauraewaddell.com

“…the breadth of source material used to mine these process poems is unexpected, funny and surprisingly political… Tough forces the reader to participate, rather than just read.”

“A fantastic read. Hooked from the first page. Cannot recommend highly enough.”
