This is the setting of her third book, a memoir, THE UNDERTAKER’S DAUGHTER to be published in 2014 by Gallery Books in the USA and by Simon & Schuster in the UK.

She is the co-author of TEN STEPS TO FASHION FREEDOM, Crown USA and HarperCollins UK and ELLIE HART GOES TO WORK, Vermillion.

Kate attended Western Kentucky University before moving to Manhattan where she graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. After living in New York and Los Angeles, she now makes London her home.
