Author: Katy Walters

Katy lives on the coast with her husband and golden retriever Lily. She often finds inspiration writing in the beach hut or strolling along the water’s edge.

She has a B.A. Hons in Psychology, another degree in Eng. Lit and Creative Writing. Her M.A. was in The Religious Experience and Mysticism as she has always had a vivid interest in the subjects along with a fascination of science fiction. She was awarded a Hon.Dr.Sc. concentrating on Pain control in Complementary Medicine. Throughout her professional career Katy maintained a love of writing and painting.

The idea for Phobic Dawn came from her work. She hit on the idea of a policeman from the near future having a phobia – a fear of snakes - the flawed hero. How would he cope if he had to work with the snakes in a murder investigation? It developed from there.
