Kat Ellis

Kat grew up in Rhyl, North Wales and studied English with Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University.

She is an active blogger and amateur photographer. When not writing, you'll usually find Kat up to no good on Twitter, playing badminton like a ninja, or watching scary films with her husband and feral cat. She speaks Welsh fluently and French badly.

Kat is the author of the YA novels Blackfin Sky (2014), Breaker (2016) and Purge (2016). She has recently publised the novella 'The Twins of Blackfin' as part of Three Strikes (Ocober 2018), a prequel to Blackfin Sky which can also be enjoyed on it's own. 

The world of Blackfin, a small town surrounded by mountains and the sea, is certainly weird and compelling. If you walk past the wishing well, coins disappear from your pocket. And if you forget to say hello to the haunted weathervane in the town, well, then you'd better watch out...
