Meet the Author

Kate Dempsey writes fiction and poetry and lives in Ireland. She has been collecting jobs for her author biography since she could read. She has worked as a coffee grinder, a terrible waitress in Woolworths, a Harrods shop assistant, a computer programmer, a technical writer, a writer in schools and a mother. She's lived in England, Scotland, The Netherlands, South West USA and now in Ireland.


These diverse jobs and homes are reflected in her witty, observational writing, which is widely published in Ireland and the UK. Her short stories have been broadcast on RTE Radio and published in the Poolbeg Anthology 'Do The Write Thing.' She was shortlisted for the Hennessey New Irish Writing award three times and her poetry in many magazines and anthologies. She runs the Poetry Divas Collective, a glittering group of women who blur the wobbly boundaries between page and stage at cool events all over Ireland.


Her first novel, The Story of Plan B, was shortlisted for the London Book Fair LitIdol.

    One scene

    This is 16 pages of an interrogation scene between a female police officer and a cowboy. It's not really worth the time to read it.

    Too little

    Not much of a story here. The whole thing was not informative or controversal or intertaining. Not sure what the point was. Seemed to be some grievance by the detective but even that wasn't carried out.

    a quick read...fun, too!

    An interesting quickly read short story with good character development. It was rather quirky but fun. It took a minute or three to figure out the east was much further east than I anticipated or expected. Cool!
