"Kate is a wise and solid influence on my writing career. "

 

Serena Patel was shortlisted for the Asian Writer Short Story Prize in 2017 and finalist in the Undiscovered Voices Anthology 2018. Soon afterwards her debut children’s series about school girl and reluctant detective Anisha secured a multi-book contract with Usborne following a fiercely contested auction. 

Serena lives in Walsall with her family.

THE WRITER WHO MOST INSPIRED SERENA

Like many other children of my generation I grew up reading Roald Dahl books and I came back to them time and time again. They are funny and scary and showed me it was okay not to fit in - in fact it was better!


SERENA ABOUT KATE

Kate is a wise and solid influence on my writing career. She is my trusted guide along the sometimes rocky road to publication and I know I chose the right person to represent me and my books.


KATE ABOUT SERENA

Serena’s characters are unforgettable and her sense of humour highly contagious.  I competed with several other agents for the honour of representing her and I’m so pleased she chose me.  I think we make a great team.
