“Kate truly understands the mysterious workings of the author psyche.”

 

Justine grew up in Wales, then lived and worked in London for many years. She eventually suffered one too many delays on the Victoria line so decided to move back to Wales where she now lives with her husband.  

Justine has been shortlisted and won various writing awards including the Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Prize, the YouWriteOn Children’s Book of the Year (sponsored by Arts Council England) and the Waverton Good Read Children’s Award.

THE WRITER WHO MOST INSPIRED JUSTINE

As a child, my favourite books were The Winter of Enchantment by Victoria Walker and Hans Christian Anderson’s Fairy Tales. I lost myself in them over and over again. I still re-read them now when I’m feeling in need of inspiration. It’s amazing how talking teapots, evil enchanters and saucer-eyed dogs can fire up my creativity!  


HOW JUSTINE BECAME KATE’S CLIENT

Kate and I first met over coffee, during which she offered to represent me. She gave me a lovely letter to take home, which put her offer in writing in case I worried later that I had imagined everything. I knew then that Kate was the agent for me: someone who truly understands the mysterious workings of the author psyche!


KATE ABOUT JUSTINE 

Justine’s greatest skill as a storyteller is to combine relatable characters with the most preposterous settings and plots:  gambling, magic, talking cats, murder!   I love her audacity and, most importantly, so do young readers.
