Kaite Welsh

Kaite Welsh writes high-quality arts and lifestyle journalism and award-nominated fiction, including the Sarah Gilchrist mysteries (Headline). Her work has appeared in the Guardian, the Independent and the New Statesman, and she covers LGBT issues for the Telegraph’s Women’s section. She is the Books Editor of DIVA magazine, the UK’s biggest lifestyle magazine for LGBT women

When Kaite can be coaxed away from the laptop (usually with the promise of cats or cheese) she appears on TV and radio, including Daily Politics, Woman’s Hour and LBC, usually talking about feminism and LGBT issues but sometimes talking about books…that focus on feminism and LGBT issues.

An irresistible mystery set in 1890s Edinburgh, Kaite Welsh’s THE WAGES OF SIN features a female medical student-turned-detective, and will thrill fans of Sarah Waters and Antonia Hodgson. It’s the first in the Sarah Gilchrist series, to be followed by THE UNQUIET HEART and THE FATE OF EMPIRES.
