The hilarious Katie Evans had a varied career, including stocking the heavily scented shelves of Lush, to acting on Neighbours, to antique selling, before settling on a career in publishing after being inspired by Seinfeld's Elaine Benes.
Katie worked for eight years at Penguin editing children's books and now works as a freelance writer and editor. She is a mum to a teenage girl and a young son, and has recently written a craft book called Little Things for Busy Hands (although she admits that her own kids are not that into crafting!).
Aside from huge tangents about our Neighbours-watching days and the history of Penguin, Katie takes us behind the scenes in the world of children's books and publishing, and gives her top tips for keeping your house looking presentable with kids around.
