Katrina has wanted to be a children’s writer ever since she was eleven, when her school teacher set her class the task of writing an epilogue to Roald Dahl’s Matilda. Her teacher thought her writing was good enough to send to Roald Dahl himself. Sadly, she never got a reply, but the experience ignited her love of reading and writing.
In 2013 she was the recipient of the SCBWI British Isles’ Margaret Carey scholarship for fiction, and in 2014 she was one of the winners of the SCBWI’s Undiscovered Voices competition.
Katrina is represented by Gemma Cooper at The Bent Agency.
