Kate Herbert is an author illustrator living in Manchester, UK. She has been obsessed with books for as long as she can remember and as a mum of two young boys, she finds it a complete privilege to share this passion with them.
Her love of storytelling has led her down a meandering path, which included studying theatre design and later, working as a stage manager in the theatre industry before discovering her true passion- illustrating and writing children’s books.
She loves to create sophisticated, whimsical worlds for her characters to inhabit. Kate spent her childhood daydreaming, dawdling, collecting curiosities and making up stories with her toys. She feels this has stood her in good stead for working as a children’s illustrator.
