Kate Abley headshot October 2019.jpg

I am Kate Abley and was accidentally born and intentionally live in London, England, where, amongst other things I have been an awful front woman in a terrible psychobilly band, good dish-washer, bad shop assistant, officially outstanding Early Years teacher, adequate child consultant, nice charitable fund-giver, passable event organiser and failed political activist. Last century, I wrote the useful non-fiction book, ‘Swings and Roundabouts: The Dangers of Outdoor Play Safety’ (1999), Sheffield Hallam Press.
Nowadays, I am a respectable and happily married woman with two children who have grown up pretty well and have turned my hand to killing plants and writing stories. I have nothing against cats, fear all dogs and quite like Marmite.
I published my book, 
'Changing the Subject', on September 30th 2019, deal or no deal.
'Hausa Blue' will be out in Spring 2021
