The Nuff Said team is happy to welcome Kathryn Wells, YA writer extraordinaire!
She hails from the UK, and is a writer of fantasy, children’s fiction, short stories and poetry.
As a child, she found her passion for the written word, and even though she had many other interests growing up, writing was always the one she would return to. Her stories are often laugh out loud funny, with plenty of magic and as many whimsical touches as possible, but if you look closely, darkness often lurks between the lines…
Her favourite authors are Diana Wynne Jones, Suzanne Collins, Jonathan Stroud, Neil Gaiman, Garth Nix, Cornelia Funke and David Eddings, to name but a few.
Her novel, The Origin Stone, is set to come out in March of 2019.
Emily Renzi thinks she’s going crazy. After her parents move to a quiet village, she senses that something is off about the house they’re living in. Dreams of strange creatures invade her sleep, and mysterious shapes appear in the garden. Confiding in her older brother, Ru, they research the house’s background and find that a scientist disappeared there during World War Two. Afterwards, sightings of strange creatures were whispered around the village. Could the creatures in Emily’s dreams and the ones rumored about be the same? And if so, what do they want from her? As she struggles to piece together the truth from the fiction, she finds out that beasts aren’t always monsters – humans, however, are a different matter.
