Slowly, though, comes the realisation that this girl is living Violet's own past.

Katherine is the author of Burning Out, Ghosts & their Uses and A Diary of Slow Progress. Her work stems from a fascination with ghost stories, and often plays with the idea of hauntings real or imagined. Katherine originally trained as a teacher, and has worked as a writer in education for several years, for organisations including Tate Britain, the National Gallery, the City of London Festival and Creative Partnerships. More recently, she has begun to instigate and manage her own cultural projects. Her short stories and poems have been widely published in anthologies and she reads regularly from her work. In 2005 she won the Folkestone Literary Festival Short Story Prize, and was a runner up in the Killie Writer of the Year Prize. She has received commissions from the Rochester Art Gallery and the RSPB. Katherine is currently working on her second novel, the result of an Arts Council research grant. A gothic family saga set in the 1930s, it is provisionally entitled Salt, Vinegar, Mustard, Pepper. She lives in Whitstable, Kent with her husband and three cats.
