About Katherine Foy
Katie has failed at a lot of things in life, but has turned out to be quite good at writing - which is fortunate because she rather enjoys it. Her interests are history, 'what if?' speculation (Sci Fi, Alternate History), and politics. She also has a long standing love of New Zealand, and emerging interests in naval and LGBT+ history.
In her day job she is a business analyst for a local employer, which is also fortunate as it lets her get paid for asking difficult questions about implausible hypothetical scenarios.
Katie lived overseas for a while and once stood for Parliament, but neither of these things stuck.
She enjoys writing about less well known times and places, but especially about less well known people. It is her ambition to write marginalised voices back into history.
She currently lives in a flat in Birmingham, UK with her long-term partner. They keep guinea pigs. All parties would quite like a garden at some point in the future, so please do buy her books.
