Katie/28. She/her. Ace/aro 🇬🇧🏴☠️🏳️🌈

Hi there! I'm Katie. I'm a published author of queer historical fiction and I'm fortunate enough to be represented by Francesca Riccardi at Kate Nash Literary Agency. My queer Age of Sail adventure, Leeward (originally on Wattpad) is now published through Canelo. Order it as a hardback or ebook here: https://geni.us/Leeward and paperback here: https://geni.us/LeewardPaperback

The Devil to Pay, Leeward's sequel, is also out now through Canelo! Order it as a hardback or ebook here: https://geni.us/TDTP

I work part-time in retail but my two big loves are writing and History, which I have an Open University degree in. I write and read a lot, and love to interact with people on here.

⚓ LEEWARD - [complete, published 2023, sample on Wattpad] - The first in a queer Age of Sail trilogy following Captain Nightingale, a man distraught by the loss of a loved one in war. When he receives command of HMS Scylla to track down the mutinous HMS Ulysses, he hopes it will set him back on his feet. But treachery, danger, and perilous feelings await.
