Katie Daynes - Author

About the Author

Katie studied languages at Cambridge University and soon discovered it wasn’t just French or Italian she loved, but language itself.

Her first job was writing reviews of curry houses in verse. Her second was writing science and business articles. Her third and favourite job is writing educational books for children. She loves tackling new subjects and making them come alive for young readers. So far she has written about everything from trucks and toilets to space and Churchill.

Katie now has two little children of her own and they are definitely her fiercest critics.
