It's probably not escaped your notice ~ but I'll say it anyway ~ I'm Cath Greene

Beyond the obvious (Writer, Illustrator, book and walking addict), I'm a mum to three great kids, and 'partner in crime' to my lovely hubby. I enjoy spending lots of time with my family and friends, and when I'm not buried in a book, you'll find me either baking, playing board games, crocheting, visiting museums, wandering around stately homes, or rummaging around charity shops and antique stalls (I love vintage things) 

Career wise, I tick a couple of the cliches:

  • Late bloomer ~ I only decided to start treating my creative endeavours as serious career choices when I hit my forties (and yeah, I know I don't look it - thank you genes).
  • Self-taught  ~ with no formal training this is the only other pigeonhole I know of, however, I see myself as more 'self-motivated' and taught by the all the writers and artists in the programmes I watched or the books I read, not to mention the years and years of trial and error, before I started to play with the successes.

  • Fear riddled ~ It mightn't be a well known cliche, but if it hadn't been for the fear trap, I probably would've gotten to this stage a lot sooner. Having said that, I know 'this stage' would look very different had confidence been a friend, and in a strange way I don't regret my path; it's mine and I'm in a good place now. I've learnt a lot about myself and I feel it's made me a better writer and illustrator, not to mention mum and wife.
