Hurrah for Gin


Katie Kirby is the writer and (terrible) illustrator of the blog and bestselling book Hurrah For Gin. She started the blog in 2013 as a way to vent about the realities of parenting, sans the sugar coating and has since amassed over 500,000 Facebook followers, written 2 further Sunday Times bestselling books and published her first children’s novel The Extremely Embarrassing Life of Lottie Brooks.   

Katie lives by the sea in Hove with her husband, two boys and dog Sasha. She likes gin (obviously), cosy blankets, over-thinking things, the smell of launderettes and Monster Munch. She does not like losing at board games or writing about herself in the third person.
