Hi, I’m Kathleen. I’m a writer and children’s book editor in Toronto, Canada. As an editor, I’m interested in books that show me the world in a new way, whether that’s a unique picture book or non-fiction that takes a surprising (and funny!) angle on a familiar topic. I’ve edited books about dinosaurs, snot, sleep, and Gertrude Stein — as long as I get to learn about something new, I’m happy.
I’m an editor at Kids Can Press, a contributing writer at Book Riot, and an occasional bookseller at A Novel Spot. I have an MA in English, with a focus on Victorian fiction, from the University of Victoria. (And there’s still nothing I love more than a long, juicy 19th-century novel.) When I’m not reading, writing, or thinking about books in some way, I like to bake, practice yoga, plan future travels, and bother my cat.
