As a child, Kate Tremayne was fascinated with Greek mythology and from that grew her love of history and tales of valour and adventure. That passion for historical adventure, weaving fictional characters into real-life history dramas, is the driving force behind her writing. Her childhood holidays were spent in Cornwall and she still makes regular pilgrimages to the land whose beauty and atmospheric moods have always haunted her. Married with two children, Kate now lives in Sussex.
