// Highway Robbery Audiobook Promotion

 

Welcome, and thanks for tracking me down. I hope it wasnít too difficult, and that you enjoy the site. Youíll find information about my books (for both children and adults), a bit of biographical background and some useful links. There's also some music which I recorded with two friends when The New Policeman first came out. Have a listen, if you have time. If youíre not familiar with Irish traditional music it will give you a taste.

If you have any queries you can write to me directly at my email address listed in the links page. Iíll answer as many of your messages as I can, but I hope you'll understand that I may not be able to get to them immediately.

Finally, am I the Kate Thompson you are looking for? If not, please go to the links page, where youíll find a listing for the other Kate Thompson.

With best wishes,

~ Kate Thompson
