PLEASE NOTE: Stolen Girl and My Olympic Dream are not my work. They have been placed under the wrong Katie Taylor.The first books Katie recalls buying herself are Jacqueline Wilson's Children's books. Her favourite of course being 'The story of Tracy Beaker' She watched the TV series and became Tracy Beaker mad! She also loved the Famous Five books, which her Mum and Auntie gave her to read. She loved the way you could just lose yourself in the stories, like you were actually there. Katie was brought up to love books, her Mum and Dad used to read stories to her and her sister every night before they went to sleep. It was a routine that they thoroughly enjoyed and looked forward to each night. In her early teenage years she enjoyed 'Girls in Love' also written by Jacqueline Wilson. She admired the honesty in the characters and the things they got up to. She is now twenty one years old and lives with her parents and younger sister, in the same home they have always shared. She works in a restaurant during the day which she really enjoys and write her books in the evenings and on days off. If you don't see her with a book in her hands, she will usually be found either in front of the TV watching Neighbours, Celebrity Juice or Casualty and Holby City or maybe just occasionally making handmade cards to give to friends or family.
