Kathryn James

Kathryn James always wanted to be an author, but had plenty of jobs and raised a family before actually becoming one. Some wonderful jobs, like scuba-diving in Malta, and some not so wonderful, like buttering bread in a sandwich shop. Working with gypsy and traveller children and teenagers was another highlight: most enjoyably, doing photography and video projects, which led to making documentaries about travelling lives. Apart from writing, Kathryn loves travelling in her camper van to out of the way places where she can watch the stars at night. Find out more at www.kathrynjames.co.uk
