Katie Daynes

Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.

Press reviews

The Usborne 'See Inside' series is fantastic and 'See Inside Castles' is no exception. My son is 7, and just learning about castles as his topic at school. This book was a great introduction to castles in history, and it helped him to understand how the structures progressed from wooden structures, to fortified stone castles.
