KP Webster has written everything from dictionary definitions to Radio 4 comedy scripts, from translations for Italian cigarette-making machines to underground marketing campaigns. He has also worked as a researcher, an editor, a professional blogger, an actor, a travel writer, a teacher and a landscape gardener, of sorts. He was once fired by Loaded magazine whilst working for a different magazine entirely. He laughs about that.
He wrote the book 'Bête de Jour :: The Intimate Adventures of an Ugly Man' under the name Stan Cattermole and as part of a rather strained publicity campaign, he appeared on Canada AM and GMTV with a paper bag on his head.
His writing has been compared to the work of Kurt Vonnegut, Irvine Welsh, William Leith, Mark Twain and Charles Dickens. He was also once accused of 'hovering somewhere between Dostoevsky, Wodehouse and Adrian Mole'. It is an accusation he vigorously denies.

The Lives and Loves of Hana Lee
by KP Webster
Published: February 20, 2013.
When Lucia agrees to write the biography of Hana Lee - concert pianist, nun, English teacher, sex worker, spy – she has no idea quite how radically her life is about to change. When the two begin a love affair, she learns that pleasure and death are much closer than she'd ever imagined. An extraordinary story of female love, rage and empowerment against the backdrop of 200 years of male prejudice.
