More About the Author
I live in England and have three children, two birth children and one adopted. When I left school I held a clerical position in the civil service, which I left to start a family. At the same time I became a foster carer, which is the inspiration for much of my writing. I have been a foster carer for over twenty-five years and am what's known as a specialist foster carer, sometimes referred to as a level 3 carer. This is in recognition of my experience and qualifications and means that I am often asked to look after children with complex needs or very challenging behaviour. I have a degree in education and psychology which I was awarded as a mature student.
I have always been a writer - from when I was at school, with poems in the school magazine. In my teens I began writing short stories, articles, a few radio plays, and entering writing competitions. Like many writers it was a hobby - something I did almost furtively in my spare time, while working, and then later fostering and looking after my family. The two halves of my life - writer and foster carer - came together in 2007 when I wrote about a child I'd fostered and the book immediately became a number one best seller. Since then there have been many bestsellers, thanks to you, my readers. I really appreciate all your support and best wishes. Cathy xx

This is the second or third book I have read by this author, so I obviously like her and recommend the book. Adapting to the never-ending demands of a system that seems at times designed for its own benefits, the fosterers and child struggle along. It is comforting to know that there are warm caring people, who are well trained to care for children in crisis--at least in the British Isles. It is less comforting to see the almost haphazard way social workers follow cases.
I cannot believe that social services did not check out the child's circumstances more thoroughly before they removed her from a loving home. And then to read they were thinking of placing her with an abusive father. That is unfathomable!!!
Cudos to Cathy for being such a prolific author and bringing these children into the light. Hopefully in reading some of these stories, hearts will be opened and more fostering homes will open up. It is just so sad that such homes are needed.
It was a good book.
