Welcome to the official website of Kristen Bailey, writer. Here you'll find details about me, my writing and my novels, Souper Mum and Second Helpings. Please also follow my blog to learn more about my misadventures in writing and motherhood (warning: it's a bit sweary....sorry!) and always feel free to get in touch; I'd love to hear from you. For now, happy reading! x
Happy to report that the lovely people at Rowohlt have just released their translation of Souper Mum with the far superior title of 'Tutensuppengluck'. Many thanks to Christiane Steen for her translation work. Greetings to any German readers and thanks to the German book blogging community who've given the book some great reviews and shout outs on Instagram.

"..The everyday is treated with great wit and the touching minutiae of family life is described just perfectly.."
"A very amusing and wittily observed view of family life. Great story - a real page turner..."
