Kathryn Lougheed is a germ-loving scientist turned writer. She’s the author of a popular science book about tuberculosis but her first love is children’s literature.
She writes young adult and middle grade novels about monsters, magic and mental health. She lives near Oxford with her partner, 4 year old daughter and the world’s clumsiest cat.
Her debut novel, Whisper Pier, was selected by teen readers for the Write Mentor Novel Award shortlist.
