Katie Blackburn began her literary career early, writing stories for her baby sister, all the while dreaming of becoming a pop star. She now works in publishing, and lives in London with her husband and young son. She has written for both adults and children - titles include Where the Wild Mums Are; Where the Wild Dads Went (publishes 2017), both illustrated by Sholto Walker; Dozy Bear and the Secret of Sleep; and Dozy Bear and the Secret of Food (publishes May 2017), both illustrated by Richard Smythe; and Scoot! (publishes July 2017), illustrated by Jim Smith. Katie is a handbag hoarder, and loves swimming, pruning and painting, and still secretly dreams of becoming a pop star.
