One of Britain's best known lifestyle journalists, Kate Spicer's 25 year career has seen her published in all of the British broadsheets, the middle and mass market tabloids, most glossy magazines and sometimes foreign press, including the LA Times.
With a compelling and amusing writing style, she has been the first to report and comment on social and cultural trends, like LA’s Size Zero culture, and often digs into apparently glamorous and unsavoury subcultures, like the Cocaine Yogi. She also documents amusing and explicit truths about her life, including her childlessness, that has made her a popular voice of a certain generation of women. For stories, she has run the Marathon des Sables, swum both the Bosphorus and the Solent and cycled the Etape Caledonia. She currently writes regularly for The Financial Times, Sunday Times, Evening Standard and Daily Mail.
During the early noughties she reviewed local restaurants for the Evening Standard, and subsequently provided regular cover on the Sunday Times when the great AA Gill was away. For many seasons she was one of the regular critics on all the Masterchefs.
Spicer has had several successful forays into broadcasting, including two consistently popular TV documentaries about beauty and diet culture and a critically successful feature documentary, Mission to Lars, which was released into cinemas in all major global territories.
She lives in London and is an ambassador for the learning disability charity Mencap, a patron of the safeguarding charity The Ann Craft Trust, as well as a fundraiser for Médecins Sans Frontières.
Kate Spicer’s memoir, Lost Dog: A Love Story, was published in the UK by Ebury on 4th April 2019 and immediately became a Sunday Times bestseller.
