Kate Gordon is an Australian writer of young adult fiction.


Gordon was born in 1982 in Tasmania, Australia. [1] Gordon has studied Performing Arts and Information Management at the University of Tasmania, and Literary Studies at Deakin University. Prior to writing, she has worked as a librarian and bookseller, specialising in children's and young adult books. [2]

In 2010, her first novel was published by Allen & Unwin, entitled Three Things About Daisy Blue, the twentieth and final novel in the Girlfriend Fiction series. [3] In 2011, her second novel, Thyla was published by Random House Australia. [4] Unlike her first novel, Thyla is a paranormal fiction, set in Hobart, Tasmania and its surroundings. It was inspired by a visit to the Cascades Female Factory historical site, and also a story written for her by her father about a thylacine named Tessa. [5] The sequel to Thyla, entitled Vulpi, was released in April 2012. [6]

Gordon's next novel, entitled Writing Clementine, was released in June 2014. [7]
