Cat-House Kate by Susan Bergen

  • The authentic Western voice really shone out in this entry, and added real edge to the witty, sharp dialogue – we felt instantly transported back in time.

  • We were also impressed with Kate herself - this is one feisty heroine! Her total lack of self-pity allows the reader to sympathise with her tough start in life whilst also respecting her strength in surviving it.

  • Overall, you have a fabulously unique voice – in your future writing, we’d encourage you to embrace the strengths of both your characters equally
