Synopsis

A delicious historical romance inspired by the true story of Princess Caraboo.
     Cassandra Worrell is beautiful, rich and very, very bored. Trapped in her parents stately home, she dreams of escape. Life suddenly becomes much more interesting with the appearance of a beautiful, disorientated young woman, who speaks a mysterious language... Cassandra is convinced she's found a princess from a far away land. Could the princess hold the key to the adventure she's been seeking? Or might the escape she desires be found in the arms of the wholly inappropriate but utterly delectable local boy, Will Jenkins?

She studied film at Central Saint Martins School of Art; the fantastic time she had there made up for school, which was horrible.

Her other books include Brave New Girl (Frances Lincoln Children’s Books), and A Nest of Vipers, published by Random House Children’s Publishers UK. Catherine has also written for film, notably the critically acclaimed Bullet Boy, and TV, including Holby City.

She was taught how to drive (horses, not cars) by an ex-brewery dray driver in Spitalfields.
