Kate Loveday grew up at the seaside in Adelaide. Her passions were to spend time at the beach, and to curl up with a book.
She always wanted to write but it was not until an extended caravan holiday around Australia with husband Peter that she began writing, starting with travel articles about the places they visited. Her first novels, 'Inheritance' and 'Black Mountain', were inspired by the beautiful, rugged, far north of Queensland, and the interesting characters she met there.
A love of history prompted her to research the rural area of mid north NSW while there. She also looked at the lives of women in the nineteenth century, when women had few rights and were dominated by men. This provoked her to write 'An Independent Woman', the first book in the Redwoods series that chronicles the life and passions of Kitty Morland, followed by ‘A Liberated Woman’ and ‘An Ambitious Woman’.
'The Trophy Wife' is contemporary women’s fiction set in Sydney, which she wrote because of concern over the proliferation of domestic violence worldwide. It also looks at some of the difficulties facing the younger generation of new arrivals in Australia, and at female circumcision.
She previously worked as a natural/beauty therapist, running her own business. When not writing she enjoys reading, listening to music, and spending time with husband Peter and her family and friends. She loves chocolate, good food and wine, dogs, music, and seeing new places.
