Cath Howe lives in South West London and Sussex. She runs arts events in schools and other venues, often using her own drama scripts and creative writing. This close contact with her readership brings authenticity and resonance to her fiction
Cath's debut, Ella on the Outside, received outstanding reviews, was nominated for the Carnegie Medal and won the North Somerset Teacher's Award. It was followed by Not My Fault, an uplifting story of families and forgiveness, How to Be Me, about a lonely rich boy who finds the confidence to be himself, and The Insiders, which Red Reading Hub called "another unmissable, wise, heartwarming story from Cath Howe; a tale of friendship, family and insecurity."
Her new middle grade book is My Life On Fire (Nosy Crow) and this year also sees the launch of Cath's exciting new younger fiction series Call the Puffins (Welbeck).
