Kathrin Tordasi was born in the south of Germany and has been a bookworm since she was little and started making up her own stories when her Dad gave her his old typewriter. She dreamed of becoming an explorer, a pirate or a writer and eventually decided to go for the third option (mostly because she gets horribly seasick). After spending a year in Bangor, Wales, she came up with the idea for a book about a girl who follows a fox into faerie. Bramble Fox was first published in German in 2020, when it won the Goldener Bücherpirat Prize 2021 and the Fürther Lupe Prize 2021, both voted for by children, and now it has been translated into English . Kathrin lives in Berlin where she can usually be found browsing through local bookshops, writing in cafés or exploring the nearby lakes and forests.
