Catherine Fisher lives in Newport, Wales, with two cats. She has published three collections of poetry, all with Seren, and many novels for children, with the Bodley Head, Red Fox and Hodder Headline. She worked in teaching and archaeology before becoming a full-time writer; she is also an experienced broadcaster and adjudicator. She currently teaches Writing for Children at the University of Glamorgan. Myth, legend and spiritual concerns play an important part in both her novels and poems.
