Catherine McCarthy grew up in the valleys of South Wales where she went on to teach for almost three decades. She was inspired to write from a young age, having fallen in love with story-telling and books after being ‘shown the light’ by her mother who had the tradition of oral story-telling down to a fine art!
She is the author of Hope Cottage, a dark and mysterious family saga of triumph over adversity, reconciliation and, well...hope! Penned as a cathartic means of coming to terms with the loss of her own mother it is her second novel, the first being The Gatekeeper’s Apprentice, a fantastical adventure for older children.
Recently published is a book of short stories for adults entitled Door and other twisted tales which explore the darker side of fantasy/supernatural suspense. An absolute joy to write, the collection visits a variety of locations and incidents throughout history and imagines them affected by unexplained forces or creatures of myth.
Although all three books cross different genres there are subtle links between them all, not least of which is the potential power of the human mind as a positive force as well as a self-destructive one.
She now lives with her husband (who is also her illustrator, ideas-generator and best friend) in an inspirational old Welsh cottage in West Wales where she writes, reads, sews and bakes.

This being my third publication is the one whereby I truly feel I have 'found myself' as a writer. The voices in this collection of dark, short stories truly resonate and will connect with many different types of reader for many different reasons.
