Kate Riordan is a writer and journalist from England. Her first job was as an editorial assistant at the Guardian newspaper, followed by a stint as deputy editor for the lifestyle section of London bible, Time Out magazine. There she had assignments that saw her racing reindeers in Lapland, going undercover in Londons premier department store and gleaning writing tips (none-too subtly) during interviews with some of her favorite authors.

After becoming a freelancer, she left London behind and moved to the beautiful Cotswolds in order to write her first novel. Now at work on her second, a ghost story, she is visiting haunted pubs as part of her research.

Genres: Historical Mystery, Historical Romance, Historical
Kate Riordan recommends
The English Girl (2016)
Katherine Webb
"I've loved all Katherine Webb's books and this is a wonderful addition to my collection. After I finished, I found myself missing the searing heat and huge blue skies of the Omani desert."
Close to Me (2017)
Amanda Reynolds
"Gripping, claustrophobic and often deeply unsettling, Close To Me exerts a magnetic pull from its first pages."
The Thousand Lights Hotel (2017)
Emylia Hall
"I loved this book. Such gorgeous, delicate writing."
Another Woman's Husband (2017)
Gill Paul
"Gill Paul has clearly done her research in this absorbing story that cleverly blends imagination with historical fact... Tragic, touching and authentic-feeling."
What Was Rescued (2017)
Jane Bailey
"From its tragic opening, based on true wartime events, Jane Bailey has woven a vivid emotional tale of terrible loss and thwarted love."
The Cursed Wife (2018)
Pamela Hartshorne
"Authentic, vivid and gripping."
Fatal Inheritance (2018)
Rachel Rhys
"With a dash of Agatha Christie and a nod to Zelda Fitzgerald, Rachel Rhys' historical mystery is simply gorgeous. The late 1940s Cote d'Azur setting is a character in its own right - one that will have you yearning to sip a gin fizz while watching the sun sink into the Mediterranean."
The Forgotten Village (2019)
Lorna Cook
"I was so absorbed that I read it in a single day."
