Kathryn Apel is a born-and-bred farm girl who’s scared of cows. She lives with her husband and two sons amongst the gum trees, cattle and kangaroos on a Queensland grazing property. There are also guinea pigs – and a Jack Russell that dotes on all the cuteness. Kathryn teaches part-time in the role of Literacy Coordinator, and conducts author talks at schools and festivals. Bully on the Bus is Kathryn’s third book and was released in 2014 to much acclaim. On Track (2015), This is the Mud (2009) and Fencing With Fear (2008).
