Meet the Author

I live in Essex in the UK with my son and two cats, Puzzle and Bud. Like so many people I've always written and had lots of ideas for stories but never thought I would ever be published. In January 2011 I helped to set up a writing group(Writebulb) and found out about Smashwords from one of our guest speakers, Penelope Fletcher. I remember being totally blown away by the fact it was possible to self-publish and a couple of weeks later finished a book that I started some years ago.I've now published 3 books and one short story in the Burly & Grum Tales one one story, 'Unlucky Dip' for young adults, and will continue to write and self-publish - it's been hard work, but I've learnt a lot and met some great people along the way and I have a great sense of achievement. If anyone loves to write and is hesitating about self-publishing I would definitely say give it a go!Kate :)

    This is the third book in the Burly and Grum series and it is as

    This is the third book in the Burly and Grum series and it is as much fun as the others.  Again Kate Tenbeth has hit the mark on filling this book with fun, excitement, mystery and drama for kids of all ages 4 to 104 and beyond.

    In this adventure it is Burly’s the Bear birthday and Mike the Angel wants to give him the best birthday ever.  It starts out with Burly and Grum the Goblin taken to the beach by Mike.  They have never seen the beach or ocean before.  The three of them have lunch and then Mike has work he has to do for his “Boss” so he leaves Burly and Grum for a quiet day on the island.  It doesn’t take long for them to get into trouble because of course the deserted island isn’t deserted.  The book ends with a big birthday party for Burly, with all his friends there, Grum the Goblin, Mike the Angel, Max the young Human, and some new friends they meet on the island.

    I loved this book as much as I have all of her books.  Again, she has given us a new fresh storyline with a fell good ending and a fun adventure.   I have reviewed all of the Burly and Grum books and you can read them all on this site.

    I recommend this book and all of her books to anyone who wants a fun short read.  All of her books are around 40 pages long but she sure knows how to pack a lot of fun in a very short time.   It has wonderful illustrations by Rob Jones…I wish there were more, a lot more and Kate’s witting is great.

    Kate Tenbeth also gives a donation to the Born Free Foundation for each book that is purchased.  So how can you go wrong…buying her stories not only do you get a fun filled story that will make you smile (a lot) you are also contributing to a great foundation.

    Highly recommended for kids!

    This is the third of the Burly & Grum Tales and I was keen to read it after having enjoyed the second book so much. To my delight, this book is even better - it's funny, well written, the illustrations are brilliant, the characters are great and the pace is good. I do hope that these books take off - I can even see Burly and Grum having their own show one day!
