Katherine Alice "K.A." Applegate (born October 9, 1956) is an American author of middle grade science fiction, including the very successful Animorphs series with her husband, Michael Grant. She now has an official account on Twitter. She is also the winner of the 2013 Newberry Medal for The One and Only Ivan, which was released as a motion picture by Disney in August 2020, direct to Disney+. (See the trailer for that here.)
