Kathy Sharp lives by the sea in Dorset (UK). She is a prolific writer of short fiction and song lyrics, and is the author of the quirky Larus Trilogy of novels, inspired by the dramatic scenery of the Jurassic Coast. The sea, and ships and boats, feature strongly in Kathy's writing, as does a wry sense of humour.
Kathy says: "When I first began writing fiction, I asked myself what exactly it was I wanted to write. The answer came back, 'Something magical!' The result was three novels about the not-quite-real Isle of Larus. Since then, I have looked for that sense of the magical in all my writing."
Whales and Strange Stars, the first book in Kathy's new historical fiction Wych Ferry Series, will be published in 2018.
