Kathryn Apel is a born-and-bred farm girl who’s scared of cows. She lives among the gum trees, kangaroos and cattle on a Queensland grazing property. Kat’s writing is a blend of humour and heart. Many of her picture books are inspired by the misadventures of life on the land. There are often cows. Kat’s books have received recognition in numerous awards, with Bully on the Bus winning the Australian Family Therapists’ Award for Children’s Literature, and awarded an American Notable Social Studies Trade Book. Kat loves pumping poetry to build writing muscle and spark creativity.
