Katherine Rundell is the author of Rooftoppers, Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms (a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner), The Wolf Wilder, and The Explorer. She grew up in Zimbabwe, Brussels, and London, and is currently a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. She begins each day with a cartwheel and believes that reading is almost exactly the same as cartwheeling: it turns the world upside down and leaves you breathless. In her spare time, she enjoys walking on tightropes and trespassing on the rooftops of Oxford colleges.
"Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms is the work of a writer with
an utterly distinctive voice and a wild imagination. I admire her
novels very much, and I hope they find the success they deserve.
I'm certainly looking forward to her next."--Philip Pullman, author
of the His Dark Materials series
"Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms is a treasure of a book."--VOYA
