Kate Fussner (she/her) is a novelist, teacher, and accidental poet living in Massachusetts with her wife and dramatic dog. Her debut novel, THE SONG OF US, is a queer middle grade novel-in-verse based on “Orpheus and Eurydice” (HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen Books, May 30, 2023). Kate holds her B.A. in English from Vassar College, her M.Ed. from University of Massachusetts Boston, and her M.F.A. in Creative Writing for Young People from Lesley University. Kate believes in the power of a good laugh and a good cry, and hopes her stories will provide readers with both.
