Kate Hewitt discovered her first Mills & Boon romance on a trip to England when she was thirteen, and sheâ€™s continued to read them ever since.
She wrote her first story at the age of five, simply because her older brother had written one and she thought she could do it too. That story was one sentence longâ€”fortunately, theyâ€™ve become a bit more detailed as sheâ€™s grown older.
She studied drama in college and shortly after graduation moved to New York City to pursue a career in theatre. This was derailed by something far betterâ€”meeting the man of her dreams who happened also to be her older brotherâ€™s childhood friend.
Ten days after their wedding they moved to England, where Kate worked a variety of different jobsâ€”drama teacher, editorial assistant, youth worker, secretary, and finally mother.
When her oldest daughter was one year old, she sold her first short story to a British magazine The People's Friend. Since then she has sold many stories and serials but writing romance remains her first loveâ€”of course!
Besides writing, she enjoys reading, traveling, and learning to knitâ€”itâ€™s an ongoing process and sheâ€™s made a lot of scarves.
After living in England for six years, she now resides in Connecticut with her husband, an Anglican minister, her three young children, and the possibility of one day getting a dog.
