Cate Shearwater is a children's writer, author of the 'Somersaults and Dreams' series of gymnastic books, perfect for fans of classics like Ballet Shoes, or anyone who loves Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy or Malory Towers.

Cate was really, really bad at gymnastics as a child, but luckily the gym genes skipped a generation and the 'Somersaults and Dreams' series was inspired by Cate's gym mad daughter and all her squad mates and coaches at http://www.baskervillesgym.co.uk. Cate had great fun researching the series, spending time with the GB National Squad and with lots of help from the amazing people at British Gymnastics!
The stories are not just about sequins and sparkle, they are about, fun, friendship and following your dream! Whether you are gymnastic fantastic, a cartwheeling queen or a bit of a flop when it comes to flipping (like Cate!) we hope you'll love this series as much as Cate adored writing it!
