Birdie Black

Birdie Black is the very brilliant author of Just Right.

Born, oooh, years ago, she read lots of children’s books as a child, and didn’t really ever stop.

As well as writing the odd book, she runs a small, independent children’s publishing company… Oh, all right: it’s Kate Wilson, Managing Director of Nosy Crow.

Kate has 25 years’ publishing experience. She started her career as a rights seller, before becoming MD of Macmillan Children’s Books, Group MD of Scholastic UK Ltd, and then (briefly!) CEO of Headline. She cares about good books, design, literacy and technology.

In September 2011, she won the title of Inspirational Business Mum of the year at the MumpreneurUK awards.

Since starting Nosy Crow, she likes waking up in the morning.
