Kathryn Lasky

Kathryn Lasky has long had a fascination with owls. Several years ago she began doing research into these birds and their behaviour – what they ate, how they flew, how they built their nests – with a view to writing a nonfiction book about owls, illustrated with photographs by her husband. She realised, though, that this would be difficult since owls are nocturnal creatures, shy and hard to find. So she decided to write a fantasy about a world of owls instead, and include as much real natural history as she could.

Kathryn Lasky and her husband live in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
