Welcome to KateFurnivall.com
A warm welcome to my website. This is the place to come to find out ….
…. a little bit about me and my books
…. a little bit about how I go about writing
…. a little bit of news
…. a little bit of what drives me crazy
.… a little bit of other little bits!
The thing about little bits is that they can reveal a whole lot about you. Too much sometimes! But hey, that’s what this website is all about. So what kind of books do I write? Sweeping historical epics laced with passionate love stories and gripping adventure. I like to put strong, gutsy characters in a richly colourful setting and then test them to the utmost in a plot full of twists and turns.
I didn’t set out to be a writer. It sort of grabbed me by the throat when I discovered the story of my grandmother – she was a White Russian refugee who fled from the Bolsheviks down into China. What a breathtaking tale that is! It inspired my first book, The Russian Concubine. From then on, I was hooked.
I hope you will be too. Happy reading.
