KIM CURRAN is an author and copywriter. She is the author of the YA Shifter series and the standalone YA tech thriller Glaze. She was nominated for the Sydney J Bounds, Best Newcomer Award, 2012, and her short story, A Woman Out of Time, was selected for the Tiptree Award Honor List, 2014. In addition to her fiction, she has worked as an advertising copywriter for more years than she cares to mention (18) having landed her first job in an agency before graduating from university. Specialising in videogame and youth marketing she’s worked on some of the world’s largest brands and charities, from EA to UNICEF, and spends her life viewing the world through young people’s eyes.
She frequently runs workshops and delivers lectures on writing at schools and universities and is a popular guest at literary events and conventions. Her greatest achievement was when Tom Baker of Doctor Who fame said a script she wrote was funny. He was being paid.
She lives in London with her husband and appears to be the only writer she knows who doesn’t own a cat.
