`Kate's mixture of wild and stupendous imagination, emotional intelligence and honest human approach in her writing strikes chords. She will write a wonderful book!' -- Gemma Cairney * BBC1 Radio * `Kate has a lightness of comedic touch and flair that most writers would kill for. I can always count on her to make the serious stuff funny and readable, and the actually funny stuff even funnier still' -- Zing Tseng * Broadly Editor * `So many of Kate's pieces get a huge response because they are so painfully and beautifully frank and yet so warm... and I find myself reflecting on them for a long time afterwards' -- Emma Gannon, author of CtrlAltDelete and blogger at girllostincity.com
