Kate Morton will be chatting on the Forum from 4pm AEST.
Kate MortonÂ made headlines this year with a $1M+ publishing deal for her first two novels The Shifting Fog and The Authoress. She is the eldest of three sisters, was born in South Australia and moved with her family numerous times before settling, finally, on Tamborine Mountain in Queensland.
Kate is currently enrolled in a PhD program researching contemporary novels that marry elements of gothic and mystery fiction. Her husband, Davin, is a composer, and they have a young son. All three live together in a nineteenth-century home replete with its own ghosts and secrets, where Kate is busy completing The Authoress, due for release in 2008.
