More About the Author

Kate Mosse is the author of three non-fiction books, three plays and six novels, including her multi-million selling international No 1 bestselling Languedoc Trilogy. Translated into 37 languages and published in 40 countries, the first of the series, Labyrinth, was the bestselling book in the UK in 2006, named as one of Waterstone's best novels of the past twenty five years and was made into a feature film for Channel 4 television by Ridley Scott staring John Hurt, Jessica Brown-Findlay and Tom Felton. The second in the series - the fin-de-siècle Tarot tale, Sepulchre - and her stand alone novella, The Winter Ghosts - were also No 1 bestsellers. The third and final bestselling novel in the Trilogy, Citadel was published to outstanding reviews in October 2012 and shortlisted for the Specsavers Most Popular Novel of the Year award. Set during World War II in Carcassonne, it tells the story of courage and bravery under Occupation based around an all-female group of Resistance fighters. Citadel publishes in paperback in the UK June 2013 and in translation throughout the world.

In October 2013 Kate's first ever collection of stories The Mistletoe Bride & Other Winter Tales will be published. Her short fiction and essays have previously appeared in a range of magazines and books including Midsummer Nights (Quercus), The Book Lovers' Appreciation Society (Orion) and Fifty Shades of Feminism (Virago). She has also written introductions to new editions of classic novels - including Captain Blood by Raphael Sabbatini, Night Falls on the City by Sarah Gainham and Goldfinger by Ian Fleming. Other recent publications play Endpapers (Oberon Books), commissioned by the Bush Theatre for 'Sixty-Six Books', and Chichester Festival Theatre at Fifty in 2012 (Unbound).

Known as a campaigner for libraries and for promoting international writing by women, Kate is the Co-Founder & Honorary Director of the Women's Prize for Fiction - previously the Orange Prize for Fiction - and has advised prizes and festivals throughout the world in this field. In 2012, Kate was named by the Bookseller as one of the fifty most influential people in British publishing, and was presented with the 'Spirit of Everywoman Award' for her contribution to women and the arts in November.

Kate is also on the board of the National Theatre in London and is Patron of The Fishbourne Centre and of the Consort of Twelve in Sussex, where she lives. Kate was awarded an OBE in June 2013.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great first Novel 30 July 2009
Format:Paperback
A great first novel by one of my favourite authors. I keep waiting for Kate to bring out a follow up to Sepulcre and Labyrinth.. then I found her first novel..

Really good story line.. not as deep as the other two.. a little slow in the middle but none the less I could not put it down. I was surprised that it was out of print so difficult to get hold of.It would make a great movie or at least Tv drama. I would have thought that the amount of other rubbish out there in print that the publishers were mad not to reprint.

any fan of Kate's would enjoy..

5.0 out of 5 stars eskimo kissing 2 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
This is the most powerful and touching book I have ever read. I felt a sence of breavement at the appropriate time in the book. All of the characters were believable and the authors written prose were often close to poetry. You must read this book
