Married and bringing up four children during her twenties and thirties, K T Bowes reserved her storytelling for them.

She emigrated to New Zealand in 2006 with her family on a one way ticket. They arrived with just one suitcase each. The international bestselling Hana Du Rose Mysteries began shortly afterwards, hammered out on an old laptop used for Skyping family back home.

Since then, she has published more than twenty five books ranging from women's literature through teen series, to a fantasy trilogy.

The author has given interviews to That's Life Magazine and the BBC during her writing career. Each of her first in series novels are free to readers on all digital platforms.

It was the first time my mother let me go to town with 2 of my friends without an adult. We caught the bus in and he took us from outside the market hall by pretending he was a policeman and saying we were in trouble. He said we'd been seen shoplifting. I knew we hadn't because we only just got off the bus. He used his assumed authority to move us quite a distance but I drew the line at getting in his car. It's where I learned the stark truth about fighting back. We think we'll defend ourselves but in reality, fear takes over and we don't. We freeze and then do what they say. My friends were like lambs to the slaughter. I hung back and was the first to get away. I've used that exact event and all the emotions surrounding it heaps of times in my novels. A different character and a different location, but always the same terror.(less)

Quotes by K.T. Bowes  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Parenting is a bit like baking a cake. You put all the right stuff in and do exactly what your mother wrote in the recipe but when you look away for just a second, someone bounces in front of the oven and you end up with something unexpected.”
K.T. Bowes

“Everything seems urgent until I sit down to write. Suddenly nothing else matters. It's only when I stop, that it's a problem that I'm not dressed, there is no dinner and the house looks like it's been burgled.”
K T Bowes

“...“Unforgiveness,” said Pastor Allen, “is the cup of poison that we pour for another, and then drink ourselves.”
‘You are becoming a very bitter and twisted person, Hana Du Rose,’ she chided herself as they sang the final hymn.

From the New Du Rose Matriarch”

“Real love is not about being powerful, it's about rendering yourself powerless.”
K T Bowes

“Sophia was determined and relentless, just like his wife. The day that either of them allowed their men to know better, would be the day that Hell froze over and hosted the winter Olympics. From Book 2 of the Teen Mayhem Series 'This Too Shall Pass”
