Kim Kane

  • 4 stars across 17 books
    Kim Kane was born in London in a bed bequeathed by Wordsworth for '. . . a writer, a dancer or a poet'. Despite this auspicious beginning, she went on to practise law.

    In 2004, Kim threw her unbridled materialism to the wind and started to write. Kim now works exactly part-time as a lawyer and exactly part-time as a writer and the combination is perfect.

    Kim has noticed that most proper children's writers like chickens. Kim hates chickens. She does, however, like being backstage, her nephew, Angus, and, if she is strictly honest, most fatty snacks. Above all of these (except perhaps Angus), Kim likes telling stories, and on a good writing day she wouldn't trade her life for anything.
