Opens external link in new windowKate Hanney lives in Sheffield with her partner, two young children and an assortment of pets.

She has spent over fourteen years working as a secondary school teacher, teaching English to teenagers who suffer from severe social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

She began writing because she wanted to tell people about the kind of lives some young people experience, but it soon became apparent that her subject matter and style of writing was effective in engaging reluctant readers as well as a more mainstream audience.
