Having spent a lifetime travelling the globe, Kate Larkindale settled in Wellington, New Zealand. A marketing executive, film reviewer and mother, she’s surprised she finds any time to write, but doesn’t sleep much. As a result, she can usually be found hanging out near the espresso machine.

She is the author of contemporary YA novels The Sidewalk's Regrets, An Unstill Life and Stumped along with several others that no one is allowed to see. She has also written one very bad historical romance, which will likely never see the light of day. She is working on several more YA novels that may or may not ever be finished…

Her short stories have appeared in Halfway Down The Stairs, A Fly in Amber, Daily Flash Anthology, The Barrier Islands Review,

Like most people, I read The Hate U Give and loved it. So I was excited to read Angie Thomas's follow-up. And while I did enjoy this book, I didn't find it nearly as engrossing or important as THUG.
