My name is Kath Croft and I have been a member of the ‘ Huddersfield Author’s Circle’ for many years and am best known for writing short stories, although I have recently written some poetry. I have had two stories published, one in a successful anthology called ‘Sexy Shorts For Summer’ in aid of ‘Cancer Research’ and the other in ‘Scary Shorts For Halloween’ in aid of the ‘Breast Cancer Campaign’. Both published by Accent Press Ltd. One of these stories was then read by Paul Ross in his ‘Big Black Book of Horror’ on the ‘Paranormal Chanel’ produced by ‘Antix productions’ and was consequently featured in ‘Charley Brooker’s Screen Wipe’ programme on the B.B.C.

I have been quite successful with my poetry, winning the open poetry competition in the Mrs Sunderland festival on one occasion and being placed second and third in other years.
