Catherine Burrows

 

Catherine lives in a small Kent village and feels like the world is on her doorstep. She travels through time and space and enjoys being a different person every day. That's why she writes, it's all in her imagination. When Catherine's children started school, it was time to start doing something she is passionate about and which would hopefully add to the family fortunes. 

Catherine enjoys writing contemporary short fiction for women's magazines and competitions. A big ambition is to write for Mills & Boon. Catherine has every respect for this misunderstood and oft maligned global phenomenon.

As well as fiction, Catherine gets a lot of satisfaction from writing non-fiction. She has contributed several articles to local and national newspapers as well as writing lots of diverse and interesting articles for various websites. Her articles and items have been published in The Daily Mail, The Guardian, News Shopper, Take a Break, That's Life, Real People, Prima and Chat. Currently she writes a monthly column for Vegetarian Living, charting the progress of her family towards a vegetarian lifestyle.

Catherine's non-fiction book, Postnatal Depression - The Essential Guide  was published in January 2011. 

Catherine's short stories have been published in The Weekly News, Allas,  That's Life!, Writers' News, Flash 500 and the Chorley and District Writers' Circle. She is a contributor to the charity anthologies Diamonds and Pearls and 100 Stories for Queensland and to the Kindle anthology Things That Go Bump In the Night. (Australia), Take a Break Fiction Feast and Woman's Weekly. Catherine has been placed or shortlisted in several writing competitions including those run by Woman's Weekly, Writers' ForumKiller Thriller, Writing Magazine,

Catherine co-founded The Write Place with Elaine Everest and was inspired to follow her writing dreams when she first met Elaine in 2006.

Writing isn't everything - it's more important than that and Catherine is looking forward to more publication accomplishments and the continuing success of The Write Place.
