About Kay Smith

Kay is a 60-something retired English teacher, useful grandmother, keen explorer, contented blogger … and will call herself a ‘writer’ when she’s published her third book. Her retirement celebration was a solo ‘pilgrimage’: the 800-kilometre Spanish Camino. The heady experience of discovering that she could do such a thing was addictive and she has since walked thousands of solo kilometres. In 2018, Kay joined a group of women walking to Everest Base Camp to raise funds for a children’s charity in Nepal and in 2019 she will return to EBC with her grandsons.
