Cathy Cassidy wrote her first picture book for her little brother when she was eight and has been writing fabulous stories ever since.

Since graduating from art college, Cathy has been an art teacher, a magazine editor and an agony aunt before becoming a full-time writer. She has worked at Shout magazine and previously at Jackie, the magazine famously named after Jacqueline Wilson. Of all the jobs she's had, writing has to be the best - it's the perfect excuse to daydream, after all!

Cathy and her husband Liam have two grown up children and a whole bunch of unruly animals, and live on the Wirral.
