A Very Exciting Announcement

Updated: Nov 16, 2023

The wait is over! GIRL ISLAND, my debut full-length novel is ON SALE on Amazon from TODAY! I'm super proud of this book and very excited to see what you all think. I hope you love reading it as much as I loved writing it. The story and main characters are very close to my heart.

The official blurb:

Six teenage girls. One deserted island. Removed from civilised society, can they challenge class, identity and toxic femininity to pull together and survive? Or will they descend into


This is the debut novel from Kate Castle, author of the best-selling adventure/romance novella 'Born of the Sea'.

'This is the all-girl Lord of the Flies we've all been waiting for.' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A little bit more about GIRL ISLAND, and why I wrote it:

Lord of the Flies was one of my favourite books growing up. Teachers and critics have always debated whether the same thing would have happened if a group of young women were left alone on an island. Having experienced toxic femininity and bullying first-hand as a teenager, I set out to try and prove that it could. While this is a standalone story with new characters and different themes (and a central f/f romance, of course!), fans of Lord of the Flies will recognise a few deliberate nods to William Golding’s dystopian masterpiece.
