Kate Lace went to one, all-girls' school from 4 -18 and left to join the army where the ratio of men to women (500:1) was much more satisfactory. In the next few years she met her husband, moved countless times and discovered extreme sports. When, after eight years of marriage, she fell pregnant and had to give her job up, she produced three children in four-and-a-half years and wrote a book taking the micky out of being an army wife. Luckily even the army liked the book so her husband kept his job until he decided that 17 moves were more than enough and it was time to stop.
Kate now writes romantic novels (she has had 14 published), lives in her own home in Oxfordshire where she has put down roots, got to know her neighbours and looks after her cats, kids and husband (not listed in any order of priority) as well as working for the Romantic Novelists' Association. She was chairman of the RNA from 2007-2009 and captained the RNA's team in University Challenge - The Professionals in 2005.
