Katie Dale had her first poem, The Fate of The School Hamster, published in the Cadbury's Book of Children's Poetry aged just eight and hasn't stopped writing since. Inspired by her mother, Elizabeth Dale, who is also an author, Katie loves creating characters, both on the page and onstage. After training as an actress and touring the country as Shakespeare's Juliet, she was a winner of the SCBWI Undiscovered Voices competition, which launched her writing career. She has published books for toddlers up to teens, and her novels have won several awards and are published all over the world. Mumnesia was her first novel for Macmillan Children's Books.
