Kate Lord Brown

About me

Kate Lord Brown grew up in the wild and beautiful Devon countryside. After studying philosophy at Durham University and art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art, she worked as an international art consultant. Her debut novel ‘The Beauty Chorus’ was inspired by the many hours she spent on airfields in the UK, and the experiences of pilots in her family during WW2. Her second novel about the Spanish Civil War, ‘The Perfume Garden’, draws upon the years she lived in Spain. Kate has just completed a MA in Creative Writing with the Manchester Writing School, and she lives with her pilot husband and young family in the Middle East.
