Kate Veitch was born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1955, grew up in Melbourne, and has lived in Darwin, New York, and Ubud. She has not attended any writers’ workshops, in Iowa or elsewhere, but she has done lots of other things. Her first novel, Listen, was a bestseller in Australia and Germany, and was published in the US as Without a Backward Glance. Her second novel, Trust, will be released in mid-2010.
Kate currently divides her time between Australia and San Francisco, for reasons of romance.
“I always admired the artist Lloyd Rees’s advice to young people: ‘Find what it is you love to do, and do it.’ But the thing is, there are so many things I love to do – and most of them are easier than writing novels. That’s my excuse, anyway, for why I started so late.”
