We are pleased to welcome Katie M. John to the Leeds event!
Katie lives in London with her husband and their two daughters.
She was born in Yorkshire, raised in Lincolnshire and has spent her adult life living in the London suburbs. For fifteen years, she was a secondary school English and Media studies teacher; a profession she loved. In 2014, after the success of her first YA series, ‘The Knight Trilogy’ she became a full time author.
She currently has nine novels published, many of which have gone onto be nominated or awarded. She is author of YA contemporary fantasy / paranormal series; The Knight Trilogy, The Meadowsweet Chronicles, Beautiful Freaks, and Contemporary Upper YA novels, When Sorrows Come and ‘I Defy You, Stars’ She is about to publish her first adult horror novel, ‘The Crow Man’ in 2017 under her horror name Kate John.
Katie began her writing career by writing poetry and has had several poems published by publishing houses across the globe. Katie has since gone on to found a boutique indie press house Little Bird Publishing House, which helps authors realise their potential of becoming published, as well as building a creative community that mentors and supports one another. She has taken these key tenants and founded the first UK Reader, Blogger and Publisher conference of its kind, Chapter.Con London 2017.
Hi, My name is Katie and I’m delighted to be coming to Leeds in 2018.
I attended Leeds in 2016 and made some really fabulous UK author friends. If we haven’t had the chance to catch up yet, you can find out more about me and my books over at my official website http://www.katiemjohn.com You’ll be able to pick up the links for FREE downloads of Books 1 of my series, ‘The Knight Trilogy’ and ‘The Meadowsweet Chronicles’ whilst you are there.
I mainly write for a YA audience, but many of my books are Upper YA and cross over. The majority of my books are Contemporary Fantasy with Paranormal Romance elements, but I have also written Upper YA Contemporary Romance based on the stories of Shakespeare.
