About the author

kim langley

Stories have been in Kim Langley’s mind forever!  From an early age, she would take herself off on a London Routemaster Bus, along with her younger brother, Steven, to central London. Here they would spend their time in the Natural History, Science and Victoria and Albert museums exploring the magnificent halls, fascinated by amazing curiosities on display in grand wooden cabinets. They would make up stories about exhibits when they had no idea what they were. Those musty corridors allowed them to dream of long-gone days and a future yet to arrive. Art was also a huge part of her life and during these adventures, she would visit The Tate and National galleries, each picture was a magical story, and what wonderful stories could be made up! Sundays the greyness of London was swapped for a day in the countryside or watching the ocean in nearby seaside towns. Those long walks made a lasting impression on her, and she joined Green Peace as soon as she was old enough. Kim developed a love of cars as her father had one rickety car after another. Watching the repairs of cars alongside motorbikes, and the sound and smell of roaring engines is a memory that will stay with her forever.

In 2009 she moved to the dreamy Cotswolds and lives with her husband and their two dogs, River and Darcie. It is during her long walks and doing art she dreams of magical fantasy adventures and plots for the books she loves to write.
