Kate London—a novel foundation for writing

DSC_0308S DSC_0314S

Wednesday 4 November 2015 at Ye Olde Cock Tavern.

Kate London gave us a self-assured, animated presentation on some key aspects of what it was like to be a London cop in the Homicide Squad and how that experience and her previous roles translated on to the page and the central characters of her first book; a fascinating insight of the transition from the beat to the book.

We look forward to book 2 which will take up with some of the characters already well-drawn in Post Mortem. [Ed. She told us the title, but we’re sworn to secrecy.]

Kate graduated from Cambridge University and moved to Paris where she trained in theatre. In 2006, Kate joined the Metropolitan Police Service. Like all police officers she started in uniform, working for two years on a response team, and then moved into the CID. She qualified as a detective constable then went on attachment with the Police Nationale in France and finished her career working as part of a Major Investigation Team on SC&01 – the Metropolitan Police Service’s Homicide Command. She resigned from the MPS in August 2014.

Post Mortem is her first novel; published by Corvus in August 2015.
