About the Author

Cat is a storyteller and writer. She is as old as her tongue and a little older than her teeth.

After school, Cat studied Drama at Hull University, and she has been a professional performer ever since. She has worked as an actor and a singer, but she likes storytelling best. She became a professional storyteller in 1998.
