Katherine May is a writer of both fiction and non-fiction. She lives by the sea in Whitstable and is an avid lover of the outdoors. She lives and breathes everything the natural world has to offer and is compelled by how the wild and extreme landscapes can benefit our mental and emotional wellbeing. She loves sea-swimming and long walks, both of which have helped in overcoming her own wintering experiences. Her life-affirming memoir The Electricity of Every Living Thing is about her walk in the wilds as she came to terms with an Asperger's diagnosis. Her personal wintering experiences have taught her what it means to be different and how we can all learn to make peace within our own unquiet minds.
