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 hasn’t stopped writing – since she was a little girl. (The photograph above was taken at the age of about four, when she was most likely dreaming up stories while playing on that swing…)
She recently took the plunge to leave her day job (working on interiors magazine Style at Home) to concentrate on finishing her fourth novel,
Map of Stars, which will be published by Zaffre in May 2016, and make
a start on her fifth.
