Kate Furnivall had the shock of her life when she learned that she was part Russian. Not a demure all-English rose after all then. Inspired by her grandmother's dramatic St Petersburg life-story at the time of the Soviet Revolution, Kate wrote her first historical novel, The Russian Concubine, which hit the New York Times Bestseller list and was sold in 25 countries. It hooked Kate into the thrill of setting powerful emotional stories in dramatic far-off locations. Kate now lives in blissful Devon with her husband, snuggled up close to Agatha Christie's house for inspiration. Kate has written ten books, two of which have been shortlisted for the RNA Historical Novel of the Year Award.
