Kate Belle

Kate Belle lives, writes and loves in Melbourne, but is a country girl at heart, being born and bred in northern Victoria. She has had some publishing success with nonfiction articles and four short stories highly commended in Australian competitions. She recently won the Southern Cross short story competition for Cool Change. Kate juggles her pens with the rest of her life. She is a woman of many passions, including Aboriginal affairs, social justice issues, astrology and all things creative. Kate is a science graduate who works as a policy advisor with the Victorian State government. She shares her life with a high-maintenance husband, a too-bright six year old daughter and a menagerie of neurotic animals. Writing was her first love and The Yearning is her first novel.
