Kathrin Rohmann

Kathrin Rohmann loved stories by Astrid Lindgren when she was growing up, and it was her ambition that she would write books for children one day. Kathrin grew up in a small flat with only a bird in a cage but she loved animals and so she took an apprenticeship on a farm and studied to become an agricultural engineer. Only when she was a mother herself did she start to write stories, using her own life experiences as inspiration.

Praise for Apple Cake and Baklava

Apple Cake and Baklava sensitively depicts the heartache of a youngster desperately missing her beloved grandmother and her home... this book deserves to be in primary schools throughout the UK and, indeed, the rest of Europe. It could hardly be more timely, or more urgent.
