Kathryn Evans lost one mother when she was very young and nearly lost another sometime later. She thinks that’s probably why she fills her life with so much, determined to live every second. As well as writing for young adults, Kathryn runs a strawberry farm with her husband; writes silly poems for The FunEverse; is a competitive fencer and belly dances every week.
Kathryn is a compulsive blogger, both at www.kathrynevenas.ink and as part of the team at Notes from the Slush Pile, and she volunteers as finance co-ordinator for SCWBI whilst looking after her children Emily and Archie. A complete bibliophile, Kathryn also loves travelling to unusual places and is hugely grateful for the invention of e-readers so the two things can be easily combined.
Her debut novel, More of Me, was published by Usborne in the UK in 2016 by Abrams in the US in 2017 and has been translated into multiple languages. It won the Edinburgh International Festival First Book Award.
