Welcome –

Here you will find news about my various publications and activities – and examples of my writing.

My work rises out of my intense interest in the natural world, art, mythology and history.

If you share these preoccupations, join me on ‘the winding way of the happily lost’ into the forest of words.

News and Events:

All the Winding World by Kate Innes  –  the much anticipated sequel to The Errant Hours will be published on the 22 June 2018.

“Rich, intricate, and full of ordinary women finding power in a society that seeks to rob them of autonomy. Second novels rarely live up to the promise of the first, but this delivers wholeheartedly. A fantastic testament to the power of love.” Best-selling author Manda Scott
