I’m home after a gorgeous book tour to celebrate the launch of SAMI’s SILVER LINING! I want to thank the awesome schools who helped to make it so special… St Hilda’s; Worthing High; Connaught School for Girls; Whittingham Primary; Somers Park; Westacre Middle; Birches Head; Derby High; Sacred Heart; Cramlington School and all the visiting schools at those events. (Don’t **think** I’ve missed any but apologies if so!)

Have YOU read the new book yet? If so, send your reviews to me via the EMAIL CATHY link or post on the website books page or even on if you’re feeling extra lovely! SAMI’S SILVER LINING was a real labour of love for me – I hope you’re going to love it just as much as I do!

So… have you heard about the new SAMI’S SILVER LINING COMP?

Just nip over to the COMPS page on this website to find out more… basically, you need to take a supercool photo of your fave CC book… style it, make it look arty and fab… and either post it on social media using the tags shown on the COMPS page or email it to me via the EMAIL CATHY link on the website homepage! You can win a copy fo the two newest books for you, your school or even to give to a friend, and also an amazing ‘INSTA’ INSTANT CAMERA! Wow!

What are you waiting for? Get those phones and cameras out NOW!

    My top tips for would-be writers are…
    1. Read lots – you’ll learn loads about plot, style and dialogue as you go.
    2. Write – practice, practice, practice – then practice some more!
    3. Write about what you care about – it’ll show in your work.
    4. Carry a notebook to jot down ideas/thoughts.
    5. Daydream. It’s free exercise for the imagination – all of my stories start off that way!

    It takes between 2-6 months, usually… it depends what else I am doing! xx
