Kate is the USA Today-bsetselling author of many books of both historical and contemporary fiction. Under the name Katharine Swartz, she is the author of the Tales from Goswell books, a series of time-slip novels set in the village of Goswell.

She likes to read women's fiction, mystery and thrillers, as well as historical novels. She particularly enjoys reading about well-drawn characters and avoids high-concept plots.

Having lived in both New York City and a tiny village on the windswept northwest coast of England, she now resides in a market town in Wales with her husband, five children, and two Golden Retrievers.

Everyone feels excited about a first chapter, but it's the slog of writing a whole story that aspiring writers need to experience. You learn so much by finishing something, by seeing the character development and plot arc through. And best of all, you have something at the end of it that you can edit, revise, and hopefully send out!(less)

I try to let my thoughts about the book percolate in the back of my mind without thinking too actively about it, and usually, almost always, an answer presents itself within a few days. That said, sometimes, with deadlines looming, I just have to push through! I can't always wait on the muse :)(less)

What Book Do You Wish You Could Read?

There are so many books out there, and yet I find it can be so hard to come across a book I absolutely adore. Sometimes I have reader fatigue, where even the most fabulous book won't snag my interest.

Sometimes, though, I feel like the book I really want to read hasn't been written--or perhaps I simply haven't found it. I'd love to read, for example, a big, juicy saga set in 1890s New York.

“She realised with an intense, wonderful rush that love didn't make you weak. It made you vulnerable, but it also made you strong.”
Kate Hewitt, The Greek Tycoon's Convenient Bride

“You had the unimaginable luxury of thinking deep thoughts and pursuing endless intellectual conversations, of reveling in simple pleasures with the implicit permission to be totally self-absorbed. Then you grew up, and life hit you in the face with a two-by-four.”
Kate Hewitt, Redemption Falls

“the only way to be different is to start doing different things.”
Kate Hewitt, The Secrets We Keep
