November Spotlight on: Cathy Cassidy

Cathy was born in 1962 in Coventry and wrote her first picture book for her little brother when she was eight or nine. She loved making comics too, – pages and pages of picture stories, features and competitions. She would sell her homemade comic to a friend for 5p, then claim it back and sell it again to someone else!

Cathy went to Art College in Liverpool, then got a job as fiction editor on the fab and legendary Jackie magazine. For 12 years she was the agony aunt for teen mag Shout, as well as teaching art in several local primary schools. She now lives on Merseyside in a cool Victorian house that looks out over a park.
