Hi everyone! My name is Kathy Jay and I love a happy ending! I write feel good contemporary romantic fiction for Harper Collins’ digital-first imprint HarperImpulse.

For me, becoming a published author was a dream long before it became a reality. The dream began with bashing away on an old-fashioned typewriter. Many moons later things took off for real when I entered the manuscript which was to become my first novel, What If He’s The One, in a writing competition. The editor liked my submission and offered me a contract.

I’ve been a bit of a wanderer, having grown up in Northern Ireland, studied Drama and French at university in North Wales, and worked as a bi-lingual PA in London. Since then I’ve lived in Ithaca in Upstate New York, and in the pretty village of Gawsworth in Cheshire – birth place of the scandalous Mary Fitton, reputedly inspiration for Shakespeare’s ‘dark lady’.

I now live in Cambridgeshire and write with my pets for company, the dog usually at my feet and the cat keeping a watchful eye on things. For more of what I’m up to, you can find me on social media.

Thanks for stopping by my website. My galleries contain photos from trips to Cornwall and Paris which helped inspire some of the scenes in Reach for the Stars. So, please stick around and take a look.

All the best,

Kathy x
