Katie/28. She/her. Ace/aro 🇬🇧🏴☠️🏳️🌈

Hi there! I'm Katie. I'm a published author of historical fiction and I'm fortunate enough to be represented by Francesca Riccardi at Kate Nash Literary Agency. My queer Age of Sail adventure, Leeward (originally on Wattpad) is now published through Canelo. Order it as a hardback or ebook here: https://geni.us/Leeward

I work part-time in retail but my two big loves are writing and History, which I have an Open University degree in. I write and read a lot, and love to interact with people on here.

⚓ LEEWARD - [complete, published 2023, sample on Wattpad] - The first in a queer Age of Sail trilogy following Captain Nightingale, a man distraught by the loss of a loved one in war. When he receives command of HMS Scylla to track down the mutinous HMS Ulysses, he hopes it will set him back on his feet. But treachery, danger, and perilous feelings await.

⚓ COCYTUS [complete] - A historical horror set in Antarctica. HMS Cocytus makes her long journey south to the shadowy continent of Antarctica. Onboard, Captain Danby has made a dangerous deal with the unknown. Secrets from the past and otherworldly horrors await the entire crew.
