Kate grew up in a sleepy English town where there was little to do but read, watch movies, and bake. After graduating from the University of the Arts London, she turned her love for storytelling and the visual arts into a full time job, embarking on a career as a video editor. But it wasn’t long before she realised that telling other people’s stories wasn’t quite enough; she wanted to tell her own.

Her passion for writing YA novels is (unofficially) sponsored by Smarties and Nespresso, and supported by her long-suffering boyfriend and their cat.
