Kate Inglis lives along the coast 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 illustrated by Governor General award-winning Sydney Smith, and was nominated for a Hackmatack Award and a Red Cedar Award. The sequel, Flight of the Griffons, was released in spring 2014. In spring 2016, Kate’s third book was released with Nimbus, illustrated by the brilliant Eric Orchard: If I Were A Zombie—fun-loving monster poetry for 4-8 year olds.
In 2008, after the premature birth and loss of her son Liam, she launched a community for bereaved parents called Glow in the Woods. She is currently writing a book about the lightness, darkness, and discovery that follows loss.
