The Viney Agency

KITA MITCHELL

Holly Smale

Kita wrote and illustrated her first work, Cindersmella, at the age of six. It was swiftly and cruelly rejected by publishers.  The sequels, Repunsmell and Moudilocks were equally badly received.

Disheartened, she turned her attention to making stuff and luckily they did degrees in that.  After getting one she went on to produce films for Channel 4 – but the feeling that she should write funny books for children never went away. 

Kita now lives in Oxfordshire with four daughters, sixteen chickens and a hamster and graduated from the Bath Spa MA in Writing for Young People last year. The opening of her novel for 8-12 yr olds, then entitled Grandma Dangerous and the Dog of Destiny, appeared in their 2017 anthology.

After signing with The Viney Agency and an auction with publishers, Kita was offered a contract for three books in a series about Grandma Dangerous with Orchard Books.  The first in the series will be published in summer 2018.
