About Kate Tenbeth

I live in Essex in the UK with my son and two cats, Puzzle and Bud. I've always loved writing and have now self-published 3 books and two short stories in the children's series Burly & Grum, and one novel, 'Unlucky Dip' for young adults. I'm very proud that one of the books in the Burly & Grum series 'The Secret City' was a finalist in the People's Book Prize Awards 2014.

I will continue to write and self-publish; I've learnt a lot and met some wonderful people along the way and I have a great sense of achievement. If anyone loves to write I would definitely recommend self-publishing - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

I hope you enjoy my stories.

Kate :)

Review by: RAVENSWOOD PUBLISHING on Aug. 14, 2011 :

Another beautiful story about Grum and Burly, this is actually the beginning of their friendship. When Grum is tossed out of Groblin territory by his mom and two brothers he is told to prove himself a true Groblin. He soon finds Burly and strikes a friendship that is meant to last forever.

When reading Kate's books I'd suggest reading this one first, it is a magical tell of an unlikely friendship and starts the process of Grum and Burly's adventures together. Once again, wonderfully written, and illustrated this is a book that kids will thoroughly enjoy.

Review by: Jane Lomas on May 3, 2011 :
This is such a beautiful book - both the story and the illustrations are captivating. It is well written and the characters are truly loveable. Ms Tenbeth's descriptions made me actually laugh out loud! This is the sort of book I would have liked to have read to my children when they were young and I shall certainly recommend this to anyone I know who has young ones - they will be enchanted. Bravo Kate!

Review by: Stuart Wakefield on May 3, 2011 :
I was unable to put this book down after the first few pages got me completely hooked. Kate Tenbeth's story is absolutely charming and I can't wait to read this to my goddaughter because it's so entertaining. If this was merely a good read, I would have given it 4 stars, but they say great art leaves you changed after you experience it and this book's illustrations are gorgeous. Every home should have a Burly Bear. Kate Tenbeth has, with one amazing work, propelled herself into the publishing world.
