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. My debut YA novel More of Me was nominated for the 2017 Carnegie medal, was the first ever YA book to win the EIBF First Book Award, was shortlisted for multiple regional awards in the UK and sold in numerous territories, including USA and Germany. My new novel, Beauty Sleep, is out now: The Book Seller says: Sleeping Beauty gets a high concept ‘Black Mirror’ style twist; Sunday Express says: Pacey, gripping, mystery thriller.
Agent 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.
