After attending Woldingham school in Surrey, Katy Birchall went to the University of Manchester where she studied English Literature and Linguistics before gaining a Master’s degree in Post-1900 Literature, Theories and Cultures.
Katy is the author of the side-splittingly funny The It Girl: Superstar Geek, The It Girl: Team Awkward and The It Girl: Don't Tell the Bridesmaid. Her new series, Secrets of a Teenage Heiress, was released in 2018.
Katy won the 24/7 Theatre Festival Award for Most Promising New Comedy Writer with her very serious play about a ninja monkey at a dinner party. Her pet labradors are the loves of her life, she is mildly obsessed with Jane Austen and one day she hopes to wake up as an elf in The Lord of the Rings.
Katy is represented by Lauren Gardener at Bell Lomax Moreton.
