An early hit on Daybreak

Kate Russell started writing about technology, gaming and the Internet in 1995 and now appears weekly on BBC World and BBC2 reporting for technology programme Click. A regular expert on the sofa at ITV’s Daybreak and various other TV and radio stations, she writes columns for National Geographic Traveller magazine (about travel apps and websites), BBC Focus magazine (about science apps) and Original Volunteers website (about travel tech tips, tools and apps).

Her first book ‘Working the Cloud’ delivered a collection of online tips, tricks and resources for small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs.

EliteBooks_KR_MH_PPC_smallIn 2014 she published her first novel, a sci-fi story based on a remake of the computer game that first sparked her interest in technology back in 1984 – Elite Dangerous.
