“Be here now” says Susan Lee Kerr as she teaches creative writing, makes papier-mache, writes haiku, a blog and explores life through travelling.
Susan is a transplanted American whose writing career has led from naming lipsticks to freelance magazine articles to three non-fiction books and the true-life story of her extraordinary great grandfather. She has three grandchildren and lives in Chiswick with her husband.
A Body of Knowledge is her first fiction for mainstream readers. A reflective, contemporary, women's novel with a crime twist.

Kate lives in West London where she has three jobs, two children and one completed manuscript and another on the way.
She grew up in Germany, Japan, Canada and the US, before coming back to read English at UCL. She worked as a communications advisor for the Home Office, a Government Advisory Group on Sexual Health and HIV and for a member of the House of Lords.
She has backpacked the Karakoram Highway, and has done lots and lots of writing (but usually for other people). She works with author Jill Dawson, and is an alumna of the Faber Academy.
The Other Church is her debut novel, inspired by meeting a priest ringside during a boxing match, where they were both counting the punches. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
