Katherine Battersby grew up in a small coastal town in North Queensland, and has always scribbled words and images. In 2010 she won a Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarship for her writing. Nothing makes her happier than ice-cream, summer storms and creating stories for children. She lives in sunny Brisbane with her slightly mad puppy and several imaginary rabbits. Squish Rabbit is her first book, Little Wing is her latest.
