Welcome Environmental Warriors, the Curious and the Brave! 🙂

My name is Kathryn Rose Newey – and I’m an author of books for children and young teens aged around 8-14 years, as well as young adults.

I want readers to enjoy reading and have fun, but also to learn and grow through their reading. I write environmental fiction, including nature conservation and animal stories. I’ve just published a fun young persons’ sci-fi story too! And if you like poetry, have a look at my poems.

On my Blog, I post info about my books, as well as nature conservation, environmental/green issues and wildlife/animal rights. Why not check it out?

I’d love to come and visit your school/group/club to do an author talk or book reading/signing. Find out more here!

Young people’s stories are often not about real things in the real world, and they don’t always encourage thinking and questioning. Especially not about planet Earth, the animals that live here with us, and human beings’ interaction with them and the planet…

That’s where the book Animals in the Forest: The Day Terrible Things Came comes in. It’s a story to read and enjoy, but it’s also so much more. What better way to begin a journey exploring and engaging in environmental issues and nature conservation, than through a story?

Animals in the Forest: I can say the author cares about animals and the environment very much. Deep down in her heart, she wants us all to care, like her, and protect the forest and its living creatures… I rate this book 100%, it really touched my heart.” ~ Reader, aged 13

Teachers, Home Educators and Parents: there’s a 38 page booklet of WonderWorksheets linked to literacy and environmental themes in the book, yours for free when you sign up to my subscriber mailing list! Sign up here!
