I just learned from Adrian, Kate’s husband that Kate, my dear friend and editor, and author of the blog: roughseasinthemed died on Sunday 13th of August.
I have known Kate for several years and she has been a brilliant editor and great contributor to both this blog through her editor’s column and The Diamond Book Awards. She loved her life in Gibraltar and Spain and loved her rescue dogs, and her garden where she grew a lot of her vegetables and other marvelous things. I will miss her blog posts, comments, and humour. My thoughts go out to her husband, Adrian. I am too saddened to say more but believe I speak for all of us when I say, Kate will be sorely missed.
