Kitty Cooper is a retired teacher living in a small rural town of the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, England. She became fascinated with the world of science fiction while watching it on TV with her father.
Fantasy, sci-fi and detective novels have dominated her reading material from her early teens until now. While teaching in Plymouth, she briefly studied astronomy with the Open University. She has followed every space mission NASA sent up and has continued her interest in space and the newly discovered exoplanets ever since.
Starting in 2000 she began updating the short stories she had written as a teenager into a series of novels. Seven years later, she decided to improve her work and joined two online basic writing courses; one from the USA and the other from Britain. Following these, she enrolled on a creative writing course in the local comprehensive school. Then in September 2010 she enrolled in a creative writing course run by a local author.
While revising her first novel she joined an online critiquing site to improve her work. In summer 2013, Kitty discovered she was dyslexic due to her daughter being diagnosed at University. She now uses text reader software to help edit her work.
She joined a local writing group in her home town in Devon in 2016 and continues to be a member. While part of this group, she took part in “Write Adult Fiction” course online.
When not writing she enjoys travelling to different countries and long walks on Dartmoor with her dog.
Her first self-published novel, Masquerade, is the first of a series of sci-fi/detective books called the Guardian Chronicles.
