Kate Ryder is an Amazon Kindle international bestseller who writes timeslip and romantic suspense. Initially she studied acting but quickly discovered a preference for writing. She has worked in publishing, property and travel, and has flown on Concorde. However, upon reaching a milestone birthday and deciding it was then or never, she joined a creative writers’ group and in 2020 started writing full-time.
In 2017, Kate started working with Aria at Head of Zeus. In 2018 her 2-book series romantic suspense was published – ‘Summer in a Cornish Cove’ and ‘Cottage on a Cornish Cliff’ – with the standalone sequel entering the Top 100 Amazon UK Kindle.
The following year, ‘Secrets of the Mist’, a timeslip inspired by the discovery of a time capsule during renovations to Kate’s Cornish cottage, reached the Top 50 on Amazon UK Kindle and achieved #1 bestseller in sub-categories in the UK, Canada and Australia.
In 2021 ‘Beneath Cornish Skies’ not only entered the Top 100 on Amazon UK Kindle but also achieved #1 best-selling eBook in the whole Amazon Australia Kindle Store. It went on to be shortlisted at the Romantic Novelist Awards in 2022.
Originally from the South East, today Kate lives on the Cornish side of the beautiful Tamar Valley with her husband and a collection of animals.
