Katharine and Elizabeth are sisters living near to each other in Surrey. They’ve both written on and off since childhood. Both read history at university (Cambridge and Warwick) and both worked as professionals in London (accountancy and law). Then they stopped working to raise families, not realising that children are far more demanding than clients or bosses. When they both decided to write novels – fictional people being much easier to deal with than real ones – it was obvious they should do it together.
When Katharine’s not writing, she likes playing the harp, learning dead languages and embracing her inner nerd. When Elizabeth’s not writing, she likes sketching, dancing round the kitchen and plotting for more time free of children and cats. They can sometimes be found in one of their local coffee shops, arguing over which character to kill off next.
Katharine and Elizabeth are represented by Claire Wilson at RCW Literary Agency. Their debut, the first in a planned series, is a contemporary fantasy involving a male sleeping beauty, a 1500 year old curse, and an unwilling 21st century teenage witch.
The Witch’s Kiss: Sixteeen-year-old Meredith is fed-up with her feuding family and feeling invisible at school – not to mention the witch magic that shoots out of her fingernails when she’s stressed. Then sweet, sensitive Jack comes into her life and she falls for him hard. The only problem is that he is periodically possessed by a destructive centuries-old curse. Meredith has lost her heart, but will she also lose her life? Or in true fairytale tradition, can true love’s kiss save the day?
