About Kate

Kate Banks was born and raised in Maine. She attended Wellesley College and received a Masters degree in History from Columbia University. After a stint in publishing she moved to Europe where she’s spent the past 24 years, dividing her time between Italy and France with her husband Pierluigi and her sons, Peter and Max. She has written many award-winning works for children—from picture books to YA novels. She is trained in numerous energy medicine techniques and is a certified hypnotist and practicing regression therapist. Whether journeying through a story or navigating a regression, her greatest joy is helping people find their way to the place where head meets heart where all things are possible.
