Kat Ailes’ debut novel was runner-up for the Comedy Women in Print Unpublished Prize 2021. She works as an editor and freelanced for several years to allow her to take a couple of belated gap years, including hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. She now lives in the Cotswolds with her lovely husband and son and her beautiful but foolish dog.

Her debut novel, The Expectant Detectives, was published by Bonnier in 2023. The sequel, Dead Tired, is due to be published on 6 June 2024.
