Meet the Author

Kate Walker was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but the family moved to West Yorkshire when she was just 18 months old, and she has always regarded Yorkshire as home. She was the middle child in a family of five girls, growing up in a home where books were vitally important, and she read anything she could get her hands on.

Even before she could write she was making up stories. At the age of four she was telling the tale of The Three Little Raindrops— Drippy, Droppy, and Droopy—to her two younger sisters. She can't remember a time when she wasn't scribbling away at something, and wrote her first "book" when she was 11.

But everyone told her that she would never make a living as a writer, and that she should work toward a more secure career. So she decided that if she couldn't write books, at least she could work with them, and settled for becoming a librarian.

On leaving school she went to the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth to study English and librarianship. While there, she met her husband, who was also studying at the college. They married and moved back north, eventually settling in Lincolnshire, where she worked as a children's librarian until her son was born.

After three years of being a full-time housewife and mother she was ready for a new challenge, but needed something she could do at home, so she turned to her old love of writing. Her first attempts at writing novels were done at the kitchen table, often working late into the night when her son was asleep, or during a few snatched hours while he was out at nursery school.

The first two novels she sent off to Harlequin Mills & Boon were rejected, but the third attempt was successful. She can still remember the moment that a letter of acceptance arrived instead of the rejection slip she had been dreading.

She must have read that letter over and over a hundred times before what it said sank in, and for days she kept checking it just to make sure she hadn't been dreaming. But the moment she really realized that she was a published writer was when copies of her first book, The Chalk Line, arrived just in time to be one of her best Christmas presents ever.

Fitting in hobbies around writing and being a wife and mother can be difficult, but Kate always finds time to read. She loves all sorts of fiction, especially romance, obviously, but she also enjoys historical novels, detective fiction, and long, absorbing biographies, and she can spend hours in bookshops, just browsing.

During her working hours, her four cats, all adopted from the RSPCA, keep her company in her study, though they have to be dissuaded from sitting on the piles of papers that they are convinced are there just for their benefit.

Kate is often asked if she's a romantic person because she writes romances. Her answer is that if being romantic means caring about other people enough to make that extra special effort for them, then, yes, she is.

Romance is about making the important people in your life feel valued and letting them know that you care. But she also writes about relationships and the difficulties people sometimes have in understanding each other, or expressing their feelings, or overcoming problems.

Sometimes, when the right words won't come, or an idea hasn't worked out as she thought, she wonders why she doesn't have a regular nine-to-five job— but only sometimes. When the story's flowing and the characters come alive, she really can't imagine doing anything else. And there's a tremendous satisfaction in knowing that she's doing what she always dreamed of and proving wrong all those people who said she would never make a successful career out of her writing.

    Their Secret Baby (Harlequin Presents #2432)

    Kate Walker has done it countless times before and she is doing it again with this book. She gives you the spine tingling experience so many of us want when we pick up our favorite authors or try a new one. This story is so well written with a level of emotions that leaves a reader wanting more. She will put you right beside the characters as they go through life changing experiences. It is a must read!!

    Their Secret Baby (Harlequin Presents #2432)

    THEIR SECRET BABY by Kate Walker is an emotional journey that will have the reader waiting to see what happens next. Both Caitlin and Rhys have been told lies about the other and they must work past those lies for the sake of baby Fleur and for each other. I normally don't like secret baby storylines as a rule, but Kate Walker does such an awesome job with THEIR SECRET BABY, that I couldn't put the book down.

    Their Secret Baby (Harlequin Presents #2432)

    Their Secret Baby, Kate Walker¿s 40th Harlequin Presents novel comes with all the emotion her readers have come to know from reading her books. She has a wonderful gift of showing the reader the emotions from both the hero and the heroine¿s standpoint. Ms. Walker draws her reader into her stories and has them feeling all the highly charged emotions of her characters. Their Secret Baby is a perfect example of why Ms. Walker is considered one of the most popular authors writing for this line today.

    Their Secret Baby (Harlequin Presents #2432)

    Kate Walker thrills the senses yet again with THEIR SECRET BABY. This fabulous offering carries the reader through every nuance of emotion, as the characters are ripped apart by other¿s deceptions. Rhys and Caitlin run the gamut of feelings, making the reader guess until the very last second what will happen. Kate Walker is indeed a master of her craft, and this is one of her finest works.
