Cathie Hartigan lives in the beautiful, historic city of Exeter.
Although her professional training was in music, a decade ago she swapped one keyboard for another in order to take her life-long love of writing more seriously. Since then, she has won several prizes for her short stories and was a finalist in the annual Woman and Home short story competition three times.
Cathie lectured in creative writing for nine years at Exeter College before leaving to found CreativeWritingMatters.co.uk, which offers a range of writing services and administers four international literary competitions a year, including The Exeter Novel Prize and The Trisha Ashley Award.
When not writing, Cathie sings in a small vocal ensemble. The beautiful Devon coastline also provides plenty of distraction but on a rainy day if there's an opera or theatre screening at the cinema, she'll be there.

The Final Reckoning is an atmospheric, twisty thriller set in the peaceful (or maybe not so peaceful) Herefordshire countryside.
When Lindsay Ellis was a teenager, he stumbled across the dead body of her boyfriend Simon’s father, who had been battered to death.
Someone in the village knows who murdered Simon's father, and why.
Does the actual killer suspect Lindsay also knows the identity of the murderer, and is Lindsay now in great danger, too?

Two young friends go to war, but only one makes it home. Why is he not welcomed?
In modern-day Exeter, Ros discovers what happened,
but in doing so reveals long-held family secrets.
For better, or for worse?
"a gripping and well-researched WW2 story, full of heart and emotion. Ros didn't just hold her own future in her hands,
she held the destiny of the people that she now knew as friends."
What an incredible story.
I loved the songs, felt like I could hear
the music and adored the ending.
Truly a wonderful read."
