Kate Hanscom grew up as the youngest of three children in Utica, New York. A graduate of Stonehill College, she currently lives in Auburn, Massachusetts, with her family. Since the publication of her first book, Literal Lily, Kate has found joy and fulfillment in sharing her stories with those who will learn from and be delighted by the story most—children! In her sophomore book, Fickle Fiona, she hopes that children will be equally entertained and challenged to expand their minds, imaginations, and vocabulary! Writing has been a creative outlet for Kate since childhood. She loves dreaming up new characters and watching in awe as they come to life. She hopes that when readers meet Fiona, they are encouraged to laugh, learn, and not let their own indecision get in the way of whatever it is that they want to do!
