Educated at Leeds University. First job was quite quirky: I was the Letters Editor at the ancient Lady magazine. I had to personally reply to readers' household and miscellaneous queries, and print a selection of them in the mag each week. Very old-fashioned, but excellent fun. Main work has been working as a sub-editor on consumer magazines, everything from cars, to lads' gadgets, to fashion, to true life women's mags. Previous titles with Buster Books: Girls' Book of Secrets and Girls' Book of Friendship. Particular interests include: yoga, travel, music ... Katy Jackson is a freelance illustrator based in London.
