thank you for stopping by


Hello there! I'm Kate Hannigan, and I'm happy you found my online home. I enjoy writing and researching books for young readers. While I'm passionate about lots of things – big dogs, peppermint tea, wool socks in Chicago winters – I am especially excited about writing books that feature strong girls. 

I hope you'll follow the links and learn more about my books, perhaps visit my blog and read about other children's authors, and maybe you'll send me a message. Because I like connecting with students in the classroom, I hope you'll stop by my school visits page and invite me out to your school!
