Kathy Sharp was born in Kent but now lives by the sea in Weymouth, Dorset. She is a prolific writer of short fiction and song lyrics, and is the author of the Larus Trilogy of novels, inspired by the wonderful landscapes of the Jurassic Coast. Kathy also sings with the Island Voices Choir on Portland, and is a keen member of local writing groups, as well as enjoying studying the local flora.
Kathy says: “When I first began writing fiction, I asked myself what exactly it was I wanted to write. The answer came back, ‘Something magical!’ The result was three novels about the not-quite-real Isle of Larus. Since then, I have looked for that sense of the magical in all my writing.”
