Kate O'Shaughnessy writes middle grade fiction. Her debut novel, 

The Lonely Heart of Maybelle Lane, was published by Knopf/Random House this spring.


Kate is a graduate of Yale University and an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). She is also a long-time member of Left Margin LIT's Writers' Bootcamp.


When she’s not writing, you can find Kate in her garden, eating good food, hiking with her dog, and chronically mispronouncing words she’s read but never heard said aloud.
