"There is plenty of teen angst, rock-and-rolling action and character development to keep Gordon't fans happy as her cast of characters live out their paranormal lives in Hobart and its surrounds." - Chloe Hope, Burnie Advocate

Kate Gordon

Kate Gordon grew up in a very booky house, with two librarian parents, in a small town by the sea on the north-west coast of Tasmania. In 2009, Kate was the recipient of a Varuna writer's fellowship. Her first book, Three Things About Daisy Blue - a young adult novel about travel, love, self-acceptance and letting go - was published in the Girlfriend series by Allen & Unwin in 2010.

Now Kate lives with her husband and her very strange cat, Mephy Danger Gordon. Every morning, while Kate writes, Mephy Danger sits behind her on the couch with his tail curled around her neck. Kate was the recipient of a 2011 Arts Tasmania Assistance to Individuals grant, which means she can now spend more time losing herself in the world of Thylas and Sarcos.
