Kate O’Hearn was born in Canada, raised in New York City, and has traveled all over the United States. She currently resides in England.
When she moved to England, and then toured Europe, she was exposed to all the exciting and rich history of the area. Her imagination spilled over and she started to write, inspired by her love of reading and the fantastic stories her parents told on long journeys. Now she shares that pleasure with everyone, telling stories of wild adventures in strange lands – but filled with people who are just like you and like Kate. And of families who face terrible dangers and come together as they fight for a common goal.
Kate explains that her love of writing for the middle grade market comes from knowing at this age, students still have the sparkle of “magic and wonder” in their eyes that time and life haven’t diminished. Kate is the author of the Pegasus series, the Shadow Dragon series, the Titans series, the Valkyrie series, and the Atlantis series.
