Kate Gordon grew up in a very booky house, in a small town by the sea in Tasmania. After studying performing arts and realising she was a terrible actor, Kate decided to become a librarian. She never stopped writing and, in 2009, she applied for and won a Varuna fellowship, which led to all sorts of lovely writer things happening. Kate's first book, Three Things About Daisy Blue, was published by Allen and Unwin in 2010. Her most recent publications are the young adult novel Girl Running, Boy Falling and the younger reader Juno Jones: Word Ninja.
