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.

Follow Cat Royal in the third volume in this series, "in which the French Royal family flee as Cat takes her first steps as a dancing spy and witness the power of the people."

I couldn't put it down and if you've read the first two books, - The Diamond of Drury Lane and Cat Amongst the Pigeons, you just have to read this one as well.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Miss Rose on 23 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
This is the third book in the series of books which are all told in first person by Catherine Royal, who addresses the reader directly. The book follows on chronologically from the second book where Cat tells the reader all of the events that happen to her in the summer of 1791. Unfortunately for Cat, the place where she called home - the theatre Royal in Drury Lane London is to be closed down. Cat then finds she is homeless on the streets of London with only the hopes of selling her precious manuscripts of her past trials and tribulations of boxing and fighting. Unfortunately, due to the era, women are not seen as equal to men, and the subject of Cats writing is not deemed appropriate for her gender. Therefore, Cat struggles to find anywhere that will accept her work for publishing and she ends up being tricked by the wicked Mr Tweedle and held captive as his maid, while he takes the profit of selling her work as his! It is Mr Sheridan and Frank who help her out of her predicament. It is then Mr Sheridan's offer to Cat of being a spy for him which sends Cat out of London and into Paris.
The time era of the book is set is the time of the French revolution. The main part of the story in France involves the King fleeing the country and Cat being stuck in the middle of the political scandal trying to find out what the common people think. She starts to understand the power of the people in the Kings absence and realises that the impossible may be possible. During her time in Paris, the Duke, Duchess, Lizzy and Frank are also present, as well as Pedro and Johnny. As an undercover spy acting as a ballerina, Cat along with Frank and his loyal servant Joseph, end up in the middle of the den of thieves with JF as the witty leader.

Format: Paperback
Julia Golding's Cat Royal series has been with us a while now, so I am sorry to say I'm late for the party as I have started with this, 'Den of Thieves', the third book in the series. Suffice to say, I will soon read the first two, and then the books which have come after.

With a strange mix of the top drawer and the hoi polloi of London and Paris, with the theatre as the thing which binds it and them all together, teenage orphan adopted by Drury Lane theatre folk Cat Royal is, rather suddenly cast adrift on to London's harsh unforgiving streets after her combined home and work place, the Drury Lane theatre is knocked down to make way for a brand new building. However, her homelessness is partly the fault of usually good solid friends assuming she will be ok as she usually is during hard times, and Cat's own pride which prevents her uttering, 'What about me? Where do I go?' etc.

Her penchant for writing tales based on her own experiences and those of her friends, and for good measure, enemies and others within her limited London stamping ground, may provide a glimmer of hope. She hawks her precious manuscripts around the small publishing houses to see if she can earn money from them. It is here the tale really begins, so will have to rein in the spoilers, but basically, after being ill-used by one dubious character, and threatened by another, her friends finally show the level of concern previously amiss. Not too long after, Cat is in Paris as a correspondent for theatre impresario, Mr Sheridan. Cat blunders into Paris at the worst possible time, and is soon embroiled in all sorts of fixes.

Cat is a delightful character.

It was so interesting and there was always something that happens yet sticking to the same plot . I would definitely recommend it if you like an adventure.(read the first book first ) I think it's one of her best books so far. The theatre (her home ) is getting replaced and cat has to find her own way in life but after being used her pattern sends her to France to "keep an eye " on the happening but finds herself in grate danger.
