Kate Inglis lives along the south shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, where she was born. In November 2009 her first novel was published — The Dread Crew: Pirates of the Backwoods, a book January Magazine calls "a spirited tale, gorgeously rendered." It was nominated for a Hackmatack Award in Nova Scotia and a Red Cedar Award in British Columbia. The sequel, Flight of the Griffons, was released in spring 2014. In fall 2015, Kate's third book will come out—a picture book of monster poetry for 4-8 year olds. Her first award-nominated adult non-fiction book—Notes for the Everlost: A Field Guide to Grief—was published in 2018 with Shambhala Books.
