Katy Cannon


Katy was born in Abu Dhabi, grew up in Wales, went to university in Lancaster, spent a few years splitting her time between London, Hertfordshire, and an assortment of hotels across the world. She now lives in a little market town not far from Cambridge. She has a husband, two children, and far too many notebooks.

As a teenager, Katy was constantly in trouble for reading when she should have been doing something else. These days, she mostly gets in trouble for dreaming up new stories when she should be writing the ones she’s already working on.

Katy’s debut YA novel, LOVE, LIES & LEMON PIES, has been translated into eight languages. Her latest book, THE SWITCH UP: LA EXCHANGE, was released in June 2020.

Since becoming a published author, Katy has spoken about writing at many festivals and events – including the prestigious Hay Festival – plus given creative writing workshops in schools across the country. She loves helping young writers find the stories inside them, just waiting to be told.

Katy also writes for adults as Sophie Pembroke.
