Kate Eberlen was born in a small town thirty miles from London and spent her childhood reading books and longing to escape to the big city. She studied Classics at Oxford University before discovering that she was much less interested in the world of academia than the world of work.
Kate has had many jobs, from running her own jewellery business at the age of thirteen, lift girl in Harrods, au pair in Rome and New York, working in theatre box office and a career in publishing, before becoming a mother, teaching English as a Foreign Language and writing novels.
Since her novel Miss You (Mantle) became an international bestseller, she has been fortunate enough to work full-time as a writer, and spend time living in Rome, doing research for her new novel If Only, which will be published in 2020.
If Only reflects Kate’s passions for Italy, classical literature, and, especially, ballet and ballroom dance.
Kate now lives in London, loving everything about it that she dreamed of as a child - the diversity, the galleries, the opportunity to see amazing theatre and dance, the parks, the blossom and the sparkling River Thames.
