Kay Seeley lives in London. She has two daughters, both married and three grandchildren, all adorable. She writes novels and short stories for Women's Magazines.
Her latest book, The Guardian Angel was inspired by her six-year-old grandson, who is autistic and non-verbal. It made her think of what would happen to boys born 'different' in Victorian times. It's a love story.
The Watercress Girls was inspired by reading about the lives of street sellers in Henry Mayhew's book London Labour and the London Poor. This is a Victorian mystery set in London's East End.
Learning about the history of the Victorian canals inspired The Water Gypsy which is about a girl from the boats.
All three of Kay's novels have been listed as a finalists for The Wishing Shelf Award. Kay's books have been likened to novels by Dilly Court, Catherine Cookson and Barbara Taylor Bradford. Kay's three Victorian novels are now available in The Victorian Novels Box Set.
