Kate Winter is a journalist, novelist and storyteller from the North West of Ireland who was lucky enough to grow up with no TV (though she didn’t consider it a lucky break at the time) and lots of books. After graduating from the University of Ulster with First Class honours and the Ulster Television Award for her BA in Media Studies, Kate promptly forged a glittering career in waitressing. Then one day, beside the pool in Australia, Kate decided it was time to write a book. The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter (RIP) is her first novel.
Falling in love is never simple. Especially when you’re dead.
When Rosie Potter wakes up one morning with what she assumes is the world’s worst hangover, the last thing she expects to discover is that she’s actually dead. With a frustrating case of amnesia, suspicious circumstances surrounding her untimely demise, and stuck wearing her ugliest flannel PJs, Rosie must figure out not only what happened last night, but why on earth she’s still here.
Slowly the mystery unravels, but there are many secrets buried in the quiet Irish village of Ballycarragh, and nobody is innocent as they first appear. Aided by the unlikeliest of allies in her investigation, Rosie discovers that life after death isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, particularly when you might just be falling in love…
In this hilarious, life-affirming and romantic journey through Rosie Potter’s afterlife, she shares the ghostly tale of how she lived, she lied, and she loved (in that order).
The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter (RIP) is out in trade paperback and e-book today!
