Kate Hunter is a writer of all sorts of things: books, ads, articles and ‘to-do’ lists that rarely get done. Her favourite things are conversation, food, friends and family, preferably enjoyed all at once. Originally keen on journalism, her inclination to embellish the truth got in the way of a credible journalistic career. After twenty years as a copywriter, Kate still writes ads but prefers writing novels. In 2010, Kate published her first middle reader novel Mosquito Advertising: The Parfizz Pitch, followed closely by Mosquito Advertising: The Blade Brief (2011) and Mosquito Advertising: The Crunch Campaign (2012). A Curry for Murray is her first picture book. She lives in Brisbane with her husband, their three kids, a dog, and – after rain – more than a few mosquitoes. One day she would like to live in New York City or on a remote tropical island.
