ABOUT ME …

Hello! I am the author of Where the Wild Mums Are, a fun gift book for mums, and Where the Wild Dads Went (a dafter version for dads) both illustrated by Sholto Walker. There’s Dozy Bear and the Secret of Sleep (a sleep aid for children) and Dozy Bear and the Secret of Food (a toolkit to make mealtimes with a toddler less stressful) both illustrated by Richard Smith, and Scoot (er, about scooting), illustrated by Jim Smith. This Christmas I’ve got a new gift book coming out called ‘Twas the Nightcap Before Christmas …

I’m also a mum of one, a chocaholic and handbag hoarder. I live in London with my husband and young son and am pretty new to being a published author.

Katie Blackburn is a pen name! In my day job I am better known as Leah Thaxton, Children’s Publisher at Faber & Faber.

You can find me on twitter, when I’m meant to be sleeping/ working/ doing the washing up. Did Wild Mums make you laugh? Did Dozy send you to sleep? Did you take up scooting…? I’d love to hear …
