Kate is renowned for writing thrilling edge-of-your-seat stories that intertwine traditional crime fiction with history. She will be visiting Yate to speak about her career as a writer, her best selling novels and the characters that feature in them, and will reveal how she started writing and where she finds her inspiration. Kate will also be talking about her latest release ‘Shadow Collector’, the 17th book in her hugely popular Wesley Peterson series.

Kate’s popular novels feature archaeology graduate Detective Sergeant Wesley Peterson who fights crime in the setting of the South Hams area of South Devon. Each story combines an intriguing contemporary murder mystery with a parallel historical case. She has also written four books in the spooky Joe Plantagenet series set in North Yorkshire, as well as many short stories for crime fiction anthologies and magazines. Kate is currently working on her 19th Wesley Peterson novel.

The event takes place at Yate Library, West Walk, Yate, South Gloucestershire BS37 4AX and starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £2.70 for library members or £5.50 for non-members and are available from or by contacting Yate Library on 01454 868006.

A selection of Kate’s books will be on sale during the evening.
