About Kathleen Jones

I was brought up on a remote hill farm in the English Lake District. I started writing as a teenager, publishing small pieces in local magazines and newspapers, fanzines and teenage mags such as ‘Jackie’. I married very early and started travelling the world with my husband, had four children, worked in broadcasting in the middle east, and became a single parent. Back in the UK I went to university as a mature student, and wrote my first book which I was lucky enough to have published by Bloomsbury. Since then I’ve managed to (almost!) make a living as a writer, teaching creative writing pt-time to pay the bills.

I’ve probably made it sound easy, but it wasn’t. I know I’ve been incredibly lucky to be published and to be able to share what I love doing most with other people. Now I live with a sculptor who is working in Italy and so I spend as much time there as I can. It’s a bit of a scramble sometimes - a crazy life - but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
