About the author
Catherine Ferguson burst onto the writing scene at the age of nine, anonymously penning a weekly magazine for her five-year-old brother (mysteriously titled the ‘Willy’ comic).
Catherine’s continuing love of writing saw her spend her twenties writing for various teenage magazines including Jackie and Blue Jeans before getting serious and becoming a sub-editor on the Dundee Courier & Advertiser.
Catherine’s first novel Humbugs and Heartstrings is very loosely based on Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. She lives with her son in Northumberland.
