More About the Author

My journey to becoming an author has been a roundabout one, taking in many other careers. I grew up on the edge of Epping Forest and was that dreamy kind of child who was always writing stories. After reading English at Cambridge, I decided to find out as much as I could about the wider world so joined the Foreign Office and served in Poland. My work as a diplomat took me from the high point of town twinning in the Tatra Mountains to the low of inspecting the bottom of a Silesian coal mine.

On leaving Poland, I exchanged diplomacy for academia and took a doctorate in the literature of the English Romantic Period at Oxford. I then joined Oxfam as a lobbyist on conflict issues, campaigning at the UN and with governments to lessen the impact of conflict on civilians living in war zones - a cause about which I still feel very passionate.

Married with three children, I now live in Oxford between two rivers, surrounded by gargoyles, beautiful sandstone buildings and ancient trees.

My first novel, 'The Diamond of Drury Lane', won the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize 2006 and the Nestle Children's Book Prize 2006 (formerly known as the Smarties Prize). I was also chosen by Waterstone's in 2007 as one of their 'Twenty-five authors for the future'. 'Empty Quarter' was longlisted for the Carnegie Award 2009; 'Wolf Cry' in 2010. In the US, 'Secret of the Sirens' won the honor book medal of the Green Earth Book Award.

Format: Hardcover
I just bought this book yesterday, and I have already finished it! I stayed up until about 2 in the morning to finish it, it is soooooooo amazing! I can't wait fot the next one to come out. It is definitely the best in the series so far, though I haven't yet read 'cat among pigeons'...but i will soon. I'm practically busting a gut waiting for the 'chimeras' curse' to come out, because I just love Julia Golding's books sooooo much. Ah well. No fear. There shall be no spilt hydrochloric acid where I am concerned. Anyway, READ THIS BOOK!!! And then read the companions quartet, because they are really good books as well. A bit younger than the Cat Royal series, but the fourth one hasn't come out yet so we shall see. Get reading people!

Format: Hardcover
I'd been waiting for this book ever since Den of Thieves came out, and was very glad to find out that all of the old characters are back (except Charlie Hengrave). This book is different in that it happens over a much longer period of time, and Cat travels much further. New characters are, of course, introduced. I was extra pleased with Cat's relationship with Kanawha. (I don't want to give too much away!) One of my main complaints with the series is that Cat doesn't seem to have many female friends at all. No wonder her love life is so complicated!

I would not advise newcomers to read this book first; the characters have developed a lot since the first books, so I think everyone should start at The Diamond of Drury Lane. One small complaint is that although it is good for Cat to travel, I want to see a bit more of theatre and London, as this is what interested me in the first place. I would also like to see her regain more independence again - I loved that in Den of Thieves, she was travelling as a job. These are small things though, and I have got to say that, though Cat among the Pigeons is still my favourite, this is a great addition to the `Cat' series. I give it 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Victoria E. Dowen on 28 Nov. 2007
Format: Hardcover
Gripping storyline set in historical context. Press-ganged, Cat Royal storms across the Atlantic in a bid to "right a wrong". Cat's a match for any male hero. Occassional tender romantic elements not over played or in appropriate. One star rating off five only because the style of language used demands a confident and able reader. Hats off to Cat!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Miss Rose on 23 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
This is the forth book in the Cat Royal series and I really enjoyed reading it. Yet again, Cat is off on some wild adventures, this time at sea heading for the West Indies on board a royal navy vessel. Press ganged on board, along with the other unlikely recruits of Pedro and Lord Frank, Cat is disguised as a boy again, and sets sail under the mean watch of Maclean, second in command to Captain Barton. Syd is also on board having been press ganged previously after his boxing tour. Cat faces many perils and dangers at the hands of evil Maclean, but thankfully, with her wits and a bit of luck, Cat manages to survive! When she decides to jump ship, she finds herself in the middle of an Indian tribe called the Wild Clan. Cat spends many more adventures here, with Maclean still chasing her tail, she faces many difficulties when trying to find help for her friends left on board. In the end, all is well when she arrives in Philadelphia to find Lizzy and Johnny as well as Pedro, Syd and Frank all safe and well. The person who was behind the scheme, from the very start is also revealed, as Mr Dixon, cousin of Frank, who wanted to steal his Dukedom!
This book draws parallels to Toby Alone, where Toby experiences a different culture and life with the grass people, much the same as Cat does with the Creeks. However, a difference with their characters is that Cat has many friends and connections with her old life and does not want a new life with the Creeks, whereas Toby thought that he had nothing left of his old life and wanted a new life with the grass people.
Genre: It is a fiction book based upon the character Cat Royal. However, it is set in the late 1700's and is based on real life historical events such as the Royal Navy and the structure of England.
