About the Author
Kim Kane was born in London in a bed bequeathed by Wordsworth for “. . . a writer, a dancer, or a poet.” Despite this auspicious beginning, she went on to practise law. In 2004, Kim threw her unbridled materialism to the wind and started to write. Kim now works exactly part-time as a lawyer and exactly part-time as a writer, and the combination is perfect. Pip: The Story of Olive is Kim’s first novel. Writing it very nearly killed her.
