About the Author: Kate Walker

I was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but I didn t live there for very long The family moved to West Yorkshire when I was just eighteen months old and so I have always regarded Yorkshire as my home I grew up there as the middle child in a family of five all girls in a home where books were vitally important and I read anything I could get my hands onEven before I could write I was making up stories My mother tells the story of me recounting the tale of the Three Little Raindrops Drippy, Droppy and Droopy to my two younger sisters when I was four I can t remember a time when I wasn t scribbling away at something, and I wrote my first book when I was eleven, an adventure story, most of it in secret in lessons at school particularly maths lessons, which I hatedBut everyone, particularly teachers and my parents, told me that I would never make a living as a writer, and I should work towards asecure career So I decided instead that if I couldn t write books, I could at least work with them and so I settled for becoming a librarian On leaving school, I went to the University College of Wales Aberystwyth where I studied English and Librarianship for my degreeMore importantly, university was also where I met my husband who was also studying English there We married and moved back north, eventually settling in Lincolnshire Here I worked as a children s librarian until I left work when my son was bornAfter three years of being a full time housewife and mother, I was ready for a new challenge, but needed something I could do at home, and so I turned to my old love of writing My first attempts at novels were written on the kitchen table, often late into the night when my son was asleep or during a few snatched hours when he was out at nursery schoolThe first two novels sent off to Harlequin Mills Boon were rejected, but the third attempt was successful I can still remember the moment that a letter arrived instead of the rejection slip I had been dreading I think I must have read it over and over at least a hundred times before the reality of what it said sank in, and for days I kept checking it just to make sure I wasn t dreaming In , THE CHALK LINE was published just in time to be one of my best Christmas presents everFitting in hobbies around working and being a wife and mother can be difficult, but I always find time to read I love all sorts of fiction, especially Romance, obviously I also enjoy historical novels, detective fiction and long, absorbing biographies about fascinating people and I can spend hours in bookshops just browsing I enjoy knitting and embroidery, but I rarely get time to do either now that I m a full time writer I also love looking round antique fairs or junk shops, hoping to add to my collection of Victorian embroidery During my working hours my four cats, all adopted from the RSPCA, usually keep me company in my study, though they have to be dissuaded from sitting on the piles of papers that they are convinced are there just for themI love to travel and visit new places, especially places with an interesting history, and I always enjoy visiting old castles or stately homes and imagining how the people who used to live there spent their daysI m often asked if I m a romantic sort of person because I specialise in writing Romances Well, if being romantic means caring about other people enough to make that extra special effort, then yes, I am Romance is about making the important people in your life feel valued and letting them know that you care But I also write about relationships and the difficulties people sometimes have in understanding each other, or expressing affection, or overcoming problemsSometimes when the right words won t come, or an idea hasn t worked out as I d thought, I wonder why I don t have some regular nine to five job, but when the story s flowing and the characters come alive, I really can t imagine a.

    Leave aside the fact that this just wasn t credible.the hero s actions were just gross and the heroine s sexual response to him made the ickiness factor that much worse.I recommend passing on this one.

    Another amnesia trope but I rather enjoyed this one because it kept me guessing until the very end Serena wakes up in hospital after a horrific car accident knowing her name and her past but missing an entire year of her life She is confronted by Rafael, a strange Spanish man who she does not know but senses a connection with Rafael has a three month old baby that he adores and Serena is enchanted with Once Serena is well enough to leave hospital he offers her a position as nanny to his baby Another amnesia trope but I rather enjoyed this one because it kept me guessing until the very end Serena wakes up in hospital after a horrific car accident knowing her name and her past but missing an entire year of her life She is confronted by Rafael, a strange Spanish man who she does not know but senses a connection with Rafael has a three month old baby that he adores and Serena is enchanted with Once Serena is well enough to leave hospital he offers her a position as nanny to his baby so she will have a home and someone to care for her While she stayed with his, Serena s memories reemerged as dreams that faded away when she woke Her search for her lost year led her to a friend who was able to shed some light on the situation and led her to a truth she wasn t expecting An unexpectedly enjoyable read I was truly kept guessing through most of the book Even when I though I knew the answers, I still doubted my suppositions Rafael was a wonderfully enigmatic character You knew that he knewthan he was saying but he hid it so well And Serena was a fighter She survived the accident and had to struggle and fight to regain her memory and her truths I can easily recommend this one I enjoyed it immensely

    I don t know what it is about amnesiac stories that pulls me towards them, maybe it is the suspense, the unpredictability of what will happen next, which ispronounced here than in other stories And this one, I loved from the very beginning.Serena wakes up in the hospital to a Dr Greene, and the imposing Rafael C rdoba, later nicknamed as Spanish Inquisitor by her She has lost her immediate memories, it seems, as she does remember her name, parents etc but not how she came to be in th I don t know what it is about amnesiac stories that pulls me towards them, maybe it is the suspense, the unpredictability of what will happen next, which ispronounced here than in other stories And this one, I loved from the very beginning.Serena wakes up in the hospital to a Dr Greene, and the imposing Rafael C rdoba, later nicknamed as Spanish Inquisitor by her She has lost her immediate memories, it seems, as she does remember her name, parents etc but not how she came to be in the hospital, much less in another city.Rafael introduces her to his son, Tonio, short for Antonio a delightful baby , and tells her that since it was his car that got her into an accident, he feels responsible towards her But who really is Rafael Is he really a passing stranger, as he says, or someone she knew previously during the time of her lost memories The tables have turned in this book as instead of the hero, its the heroine who falls in love with the hero s baby or so she thinks And what a twist at the end, I was expecting something entirely different Completely unexpected mind blowing P.S The title is so, so wrong, and the lines trying to justify it yes, there are such lines at the end , read lame

    Middle of the road amnesia story Gosh I don t have muchto say than that Decisions seemed odd The heroine was oddly willing to just go home with anyone All the normal amnesia points were there There were even some new twists but ultimately it was a bit , dare I say, ridiculous than tense.

    Yeah, no, not good I found the story to be fake and even though I read this one a few years back I can still remember how horrible it was.
