International bestselling author Kate Mosse refuses to be categorised, writing award-winning fiction, non-fiction and plays. Working across genres, from historic novels to the gothic thriller, Kate is probably most famous for her extraordinary Languedoc Trilogy: Labyrinth, Sepulchre and Citadel.
A prominent commentator and campaigner, Kate co-founded and chairs the Board of the Women's Prize for Fiction: the award has championed female-led writing over the last 20 years, changing the shape of publishing culture.
Her latest book returns to the Languedoc and The Burning Chambers is the first in an epic historical fiction series set against the backdrop of three hundred years of Huguenot history, taking the reader from France to Southern Africa. Bringing 16th century Languedoc vividly to life, The Burning Chambers is a gripping story of love and betrayal, mysteries and secrets, of war and adventure, conspiracies and divided loyalties.
