Kat Shepherd

Kat is a writer and educator living in Los Angeles with her husband, two dogs, and a rotating series of foster dogs. She has been an avid reader since childhood, and as a teacher she worked to bring that same joy to her students. Her Babysitting Nightmares book series debuts with Imprint/Macmillan in fall 2018. She is thrilled to be creating fast-paced, spooky stories that can engage all types of readers.

When she is not working, Kat is most often found in the company of animals. She volunteers with several animal rescue organizations and serves as a docent at the Los Angeles Zoo.  Kat also loves history, traveling, and making up games. Sometimes she does algebra problems just for the fun of it.
