About this author

Kate McMurray is a nonfiction editor. Also, she is crafty (mostly knitting and sewing, but she also wields power tools), she plays the violin, and she dabbles in various other pursuits. She’s maybe a tiny bit obsessed with baseball. She lives in Brooklyn, NY, with a presumptuous cat.

Josephine Myles Hi Kate - thanks for the friendvite! I keep meaning to read your books because I hear so many good things about them, but being a Brit I'm mystified by baseball. Actually, I'm mystified by cricket too, so that's no excuse :)
