Cathy has been writing for as long as she can remember. To begin with she kept a detailed diary and published poems and short articles in the school magazine. In her teens she progressed to writing short stories, newspaper articles, a few radio plays and entered writing competitions. Then in her early twenties she wrote her first full length book. For a long time writing was a hobby for Cathy; something she did in her spare time, then later something she fitted around being a mother and a foster carer. It wasn't until she wrote her first bestseller DAMAGED (2007) that she began claiming time for writing. Sixteen bestsellers later, Cathy still fits her writing in early in the morning so that it doesn't impact of her family commitments, but now it is a big part of her life. Cathy has three children and is a full time foster carer and author.
