Katie Fforde lives in the beautiful Cotswold countryside with her family, and is a true country girl at heart. She first started writing when her mother gave her a writing kit for Christmas, and once she started she just couldn't stop. Living Dangerously was her first novel and since then, she hasn't looked back.
Ideas for books are everywhere, and she is constantly inspired by the people and places around her. From watching TV (yes, it is research) to overhearing conversations, she loves how her writing gives her the chance to taste other people's lives and try all the jobs she's never had.
Each of her books explores a different profession or background and her research has helped her bring these to life. She's been a porter in an auction house, tried her hand at pottery, refurbished furniture, delved behind the scenes of a dating website, and she's even been on a Ray Mears survival course.
She loves being a writer; to her there isn't a more satisfying and pleasing thing to do. She particularly enjoys writing love stories. She believes falling in love is the best thing in the world, and she wants all her characters to experience it, and her readers to share their stories.
