Kathryn Evans is an award-winning author of young adult novels and an experienced speaker for schools and festivals. She is part of the BBC’s Teach series and enjoys giving inspiring talks and workshops at all kinds of events. Kathryn also runs a fruit farm on the south coast of England, with her husband and son; has fenced for Great Britain (before covid put a stop to training); has worked as an actor, a cleaner, a celery cutter and was even once a (very terrible) cook. She spends far too much time messing about on social media and cuddling spaniels – sometimes she does both at the same time. Often, in fact.
