About the Author

Catherine Forde

Catherine Forde is one of Egmont's new star authors. Her first Egmont book, Fat Boy Swim, received critical acclaim for its honest portrayal of growing up in today's world: 'Fat Boy Swim should be force-fed to every secondary chool child in the country', said Dinah Hall (Sunday Telegraph).

Before turning to writing full time, she worked as a lexicographer for Collins and taught in secondary schools. She currently lives in Glasgow with her husband and two sons. Catherine's next novel, Skarrs, is published this August.
