Catherine was born in Harrow, Middlesex, and now lives 10 minutes from the sea at Margate. She has been a journalist for over 20 years, but started her working life as a secretary at the BBC. Apart from that, she has written – and can’t stop writing – since she was a little girl.
She recently took the plunge to leave her day job (working on interiors magazine Style at Home) to concentrate on finishing her fourth novel, which will be published by Bonnier in May 2016, and make a start on her fifth.
Watch this space for more information and click on the covers of her three published books to find out more about each one.
