About Katherine 

Katherine Rundell studied English at Oxford University and in 2008 became a Fellow of All Souls College, where she researches seventeenth century poetry and writes novels for children and adults. The Girl Savage was inspired by her beloved Zimbabwe, and Rooftoppers by summers working in Paris and nights trespassing on the roofs of Oxford colleges. Katherine keeps a tightrope in her study and walks it every day; she has her best ideas while doing handstands.
