Katherine Langrish grew up in Yorkshire, and has always loved reading and writing stories. As a child her favourite books were the seven 'Chronicles of Narnia' by C S Lewis. They inspired her to begin writing her own 'Narnia' stories in an old blue notebook, and she decided to try and become an author when she grew up. She kept on writing, studied English at university, married, had children and went to live in France near the edge of the Forest of Fontainebleau, where she ran a storytelling group for children. She later lived in America before returning to England and writing 'Troll Fell', the first book of the Troll Saga. She enjoys researching the historical background for her folklore-based fantasies - for her latest book, 'Troll Blood', she spent a week sailing and rowing a replica Viking Age ship on Roskilde Fjord, Denmark. Katherine now lives near Oxford and writes full-time.
