Meet Kate Talbot
Kate brings her illustration talent to the Gnome Road Publishing team in Love Will Turn You Around, set to release in 2023.
Her cheerful designs and creative use of color add even more layers to author Mary Munson's story of a heart that wakes up feeling all wrong and needs a little bit of friendship and a whole lot of love to start feeling right again. This will be Kate's second picture book collaboration (with more on the way)!
Kate is an Australian-born, New Zealand-based children’s book writer and illustrator. Her first picture book, written at age eight, was a reinterpretation of Little Red Riding Hood, which promptly landed her in detention for its cheeky nature. The reprimand only served to inspire a love for tongue in cheek humour, which Kate now strives to infuse in her stories and art. As an illustrator, she works digitally and loves to create rambunctious characters and images flooded with colour.
Kate is passionate about instilling a love for stories and storytelling in little people and hopes to nurture life-long readers and artists through her quirky characters and vibrant illustrations.
