ABOUT KATHRYN EVANS
For the many years it took me to get published, I’ve been a passionate
supporter of SCBWI and am now Co-RA for the British Isles region. Usborne published my debut YA novel More of Me in 2016. Nominated for the 2017 Carnegie medal, first ever YA book to win the EIBF First Book Award More of Me has been shortlisted for multiple regional awards in the UK and has sold in 8 territories so far, including USA and Germany.
I am indebted to my SCBWI friends and critique group for the support they
provided through my long apprenticeship. I also run a fruit farm near Chichester,
fence competitively and belly dance.
My agent is Sophie Hicks:
Like any other writer, I write because I have to. Call it what you like, exercising demons; dealing with stuff; navel gazing…it rarely feels like artistry. It feels like a swirling cloud of fleece teased into strands, spun on a wheel and knitted into a crazy patterned cardigan with ladybird buttons.It feels like craft.
