Cathy Cassidy

Another in a series of posts about popular children's authors and their books

Cathy Cassidy is a British author who writes for young adults and more recently for younger readers. Her books are especially popular with girls.

Cathy was born in Coventry in 1962, and wrote her first book at about the age of eight for her younger brother. She has worked as a teacher, an editor of Jackie magazine and for 12 years was an agony aunt for Shout magazine. Cathy has been a vegetarian for 35 years and loves chocolate - she's not alone there I'm sure!  She's married and lives in the Galloway hills in Scotland with her husband, two teenage children, two dogs, two cats and a rabbit.

Cathy's recent books are from the Daizy Star series (for younger readers) and The Chocolate Box Girls series about five girls whose parents start a business making chocolate truffles (Yum!).

Currently we have 7 books by Cathy Cassidy in the Senior Fiction section (including 3 books in the The Chocolate Box Girls series) and 2 books in the Daizy Star series in the Fiction section of our library.

Upper Hutt Library currently holds copies of about 16 books by Cathy Cassidy, 1 of them is in the Teen fiction section, and 1 is on order.
