Author Spotlight #3


This week I want to shine the spotlight on Katie Dale, author of Someone Else's Life!

Katie Dale

Katie is from the UK (YAY!) and has recently released her YA debut novel:

Someone Else's Life
When seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when she tells her mum’s best friend, ‘Aunt Sarah’ that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie was not her biological mother after all...

Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family's deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own - one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all...

Someone Else's Life is now released in the UK, US and other parts of the world. The UK cover is above and the US cover it below.

  1. I love the UK cover A LOT! Not a huge fan of the US cover - the UK one has so much more personality.

  2. Love UK cover more... Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. The UK, it's just so gorgeous! The US one looks a little plain and boring in comparison.
