Kate lives along the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, where she was born. In November 2009 her first novel was published — The Dread Crew: Pirates of the Backwoods, a book January Magazine calls “a spirited tale, gorgeously rendered.” It was nominated for a Hackmatack Award in Nova Scotia and a Red Cedar Award in British Columbia. The sequel, Flight of the Griffons, was released in spring 2014.
In fall 2015, Kate’s third book will come out, again with Nimbus, and it’s going to really stink. It’s monster poetry for 4-8 year olds. Funny stuff for little beasts. It’s called If I Were A Zombie, because pirates can only be so gross and so fabulous.
