Katie Hims' first radio play, 'The Earthquake Girl', won a Richard Imison Award in 1998, and since then her work has never failed to make an impression. In Katie's world there is a semblance of normality but underneath all that you can be sure is that something strange -- and rather magical -- is going on. Her most recent work for radio includes 43.59: 45' original play and FIVE WEDDING DRESSES: 5 x 15' BBC Radio 4, Woman's Hour .
