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.
