Having graduated from university, Katy Winter qualified as a teacher. Much of her subsequent career was spent teaching English Literature and History. She also taught night classes of tertiary students Classical Studies – the study of ancient Greek and Roman History, Art, and Literature. This love of the Ancient world was the spring-board which prompted her to turn her attention from teaching to writing. Katy spent nearly two years creating her epic work, the seven book “Ambrosian Chronicles”, publishing them between 2013 and 2015. They were followed by “Jepaul” (2017), “Sephone” (2018), and most recently "Sopho" in October 2020.
Katy lives in New Zealand with her husband and two rescued tabby cats. And her writing continues.
