Official Bio

Kat Chant is an award winning writer. A bookworm who grew into a history buff, she exchanged beaches for castles to move from Australia to the UK and study medieval history. There, she fell in love with a lad from Ireland…and fell in love with his country, too.

She and her family live in the heart of Ireland, surrounded by fields in forty shades of green.

Kat is a keen cook and often experiments with traditional farmhouse foods such as making bread, cheese, jam and liqueurs. She also decorates the occasional cake.

Unofficial Bio

When I was at university, I went on exchange to study medieval history in the UK. There, I was swept off my feet and carried into Nottingham Castle by Robin Hood himself. And I also met the man I would later marry. (Not Robin, but an Irish lad.)

Of course, it goes without saying that the Irish lad and I celebrated our wedding in a castle.
