I’m Cat, a self-confessed crazy cat lady and writer of crime thrillers.
I’m also mum to Daniel, wife to Mark and step mum to two teenage girls. I’m a huge F1 fan and when I’m not writing I can be found researching cold cases or watching true crime programmes.
It sounds cliched, but I have always wanted to be a writer. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t carry a notebook and pencil around with me ready to scribble down ideas. I remember being very young, maybe 7 years old or so and it occured to me that the 26 letters of the alphabet will always make up everything you read. Just 26 letters. How amazing is that? And I or anyone at all could put those letters together and create stories. MIND. BLOWN 🤯
Fast forward (quite) a few years, and The Lie She Told was my 1st published crime thriller, that came out in October 2020. The protagonist, Kate, had been in my head for around 5 years and it was on a trip to the Scottish Highlands that I knew I had found a home for her. The story started as a whimsical romance, but my love of crime made the story take a darker twist and soon became a crime thriller.
The Web They Wove, the 2nd book in the Tangled Web series, was released on 28th May 2021 and has been received with open arms from fans of crime thrillers, and has hundreds of reviews across Goodreads and Amazon, which makes me very happy!
I’m always excited to hear what readers think, so if you’ve read either (or both), please consider leaving a review on Goodreads or Amazon. You can even send me a quick email [email protected] i always reply, or connect with me on the socials below.
I write in a shed in my back garden – Shed of Words, and often I have to stop what I’m doing and just pinch myself. I’m incredibly lucky to be achieving my dream with the support of my family and friends and, of course you, the reader.
I have no idea where this journey is taking me, but long may it continue and you are very welcome to join me for this crazy ride!
