Kat Dunn spent a good chunk of her childhood in France and has a family who’ll drunkenly discuss philosophy in French until 3am. She spent the rest of her time in London, before moving to Japan and Australia, and back to London. She likes forests, collecting languages, and history (mostly the clothes).

Kat has a BA in Japanese from SOAS and an MA in English from Warwick. She’s written about mental health for Mind and The Guardian, and worked as a translator for Japanese television. Her fiction has been shortlisted for the Mslexia Novel Competition.

She currently lives in London. Dangerous Remedy is her first novel.
