Welcome to my blog and website.
December 2015 I have just published, The Art of Survival, the second in my crime series set in Scarborough. The first, The Art of the Imperfect, was long-listed for the 2015 Crime Writers Association debut novel award. Both are available on Amazon (Kindle & paperback) or can be ordered through good independent bookshops.
Praise from readers of The Art of the Imperfect:
‘A blustery northern coastal town, a brutal murder and a complex cast of characters.
Kate Evans’s debut crime novel explores the world of therapists, which is cleverly used to explore fear and guilt, as well as perhaps the motive for murder. I found it compelling, and look forward to reading the next one.’ Rebecca Rowe
‘The first thing to mention is the writing style is incredibly strong. The description for example is wonderful throughout; the words used help to set the reader right in the heart of Scarborough. … The description through this book is brilliantly constructed so that I really felt completely immersed.’ Lizzy, My Little Book Blog
‘This was my Christmas read, and it was wonderful to curl up by the fire and immerse myself in this multi-layered novel. Wonderful setting in Scarborough and a plot filled with interesting and diverse characters. Loved it, can’t wait for the next one.’

In my website and blog I write about writing, being a writer, being an indie author and the connection between creative writing and good mental health. Please read on and get in touch if you feel so inspired.
‘Sometimes nothing is so solid to me as writing – I suppose that’s what a vocation means – at times a torment, a bad conscience, but all in all purpose and direction.’
