Event Summary

The highly successful "August is for Authors" events series is back for 2019!

Our third author is the wonderful Kate Hamer, author of bestselling novels "The Girl in the Red Coat" and the beautifully powerful "Crushed".

Kate Hamer grew up in the West Country and Wales. She studied art and worked for a number of years in television. In 2011 she won the Rhys Davies short-story prize and her short stories have appeared in various collections. Her debut novel The Girl in the Red Coat was published in 2015. It was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Prize, the British Book Industry Awards Debut Fiction Book of the Year, the John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger, and the Wales Book of the Year. It was a Sunday Times bestseller and has been translated into sixteen different languages. Kate now lives with her husband in Cardiff.

Copies of Kate's books will be available to purchase on the evening.
