Cathy Cassidy is one of the UK's top selling children's authors and has twice won the prestigious “Queen of Teen” Award. Cathy tours extensively around the UK - meeting over 10,000 young readers each year. She was 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 magazine.
On 28th April she spoke at Middlewich Civic Hall, to 300 students from Middlewich High School, Wimboldsley Community Primary School, St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School and Warmingham C. E Primary School about her career as a writer, the motivation for her stories and her love of daydreaming!
Elaine Atkin-Nash, Librarian at Middlewich High School said “When I emailed Cathy last year, I never dreamed she would even reply, let alone come and visit us. It was a pleasure to meet her, and hear her talk about her books. The students enjoyed hearing about the writing process, and she shared her tips on how to write well themselves.”
Her new book , Broken Heart Club is published in hardback by Puffin on 21st April.
