Katherine Woodfine

Katherine Woodfine was selected this year to take part in the exciting Aarhus 39 project: a group of 39 European children’s authors under 40 who will all be taking part in a special Hay Festival event in this year’s European capital of culture Aarhus in October 2017. She is the author of the bestselling Sinclair’s Mysteries series, beginning with The Clockwork Sparrow which was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, and nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal. She now combines writing with reviewing children’s books, organising book events and presenting Down the Rabbit Hole, a monthly radio show and podcast discussing children’s literature.
