Kelly McCaughrain

Kelly McCaughrain’s first YA novel, Flying Tips for Flightless Birds won the CBI Book of the Year and NI Book Award and was nominated for the Carnegie Medal. She was the QUB Children’s Writing Fellow 2019-21. When not writing, she enjoys the adrenaline rush of driving an extremely old and unreliable VW campervan around countries where she can’t say "fan belt" in the local language, but her favourite pastime is running a Fighting Words creative writing club for teen writers who constantly inspire her and put her teenage self to shame with their brilliance.
