Hi, I'm Kate Walker.
I live in Australia and I've been writing since 1977. Mainly I write fiction for Children & Young Adults, but I've posted a few adult short stories here as well.
I also taught Creative Writing for 20+ years and I’ve now published three booklets of classroom exercises that offer a whole new way of teaching writing. Please see: www.creativewritingclassroom.com
My books have figured in the Australian Children's Book of the Year Awards, the American Library Association Best Book Awards and the Australian Human Rights Awards.

When it comes to discovering a character through their words, actions and thoughts, it's hard to beat Kate Walker. She has mastered the art of saying so much in so few words. This short story is only 5 pages long but we see a lifetime of the relationship between 2 brothers. Kate's writing is gutsy, hard-hitting and honest, revealing what people really do think and feel even when they tell no-one else what is in their hearts. This is awesome writing. Loved it!
