Kitty-Lydia Dye wanders the beaches for inspiration with her little Viking warrior, Bramble the dog. Her historical fiction has been influenced by local myths roaming the haunting landscape of the Norfolk marshes. The idea for her romance novel, The Bride Who Rode in With the Storm, came about after her recent move from the beautiful cathedral city of Norwich to the coast. Hemsby, the ‘by’ suffix meaning settlement in Old Norse, is believed to have been founded by Viking settlers.
Many of her short stories have appeared in The People’s Friend magazine. She has also released a collection inspired by Gaston Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera.
She enjoys knitting dog jumpers, gazing at the waves at night, exploring church ruins as well as taking part in amateur dramatics (and played the part of an evil flying monkey!)
