UK Top Ten
I am delighted to say that A Life Lost remains in the UK Top Ten paperback charts for yet another week. Thank you for all your kind comments. They are much appreciated, but no spoilers please as many have yet to read it.  My next fostering memoir, An Innocent Baby, will be out in September. In the meantime you may like to read my Lisa Stone thrillers if you haven’t already. Thanks again. Cathy x

Three weeks to go in the UK.

A little longer in some countries I’m afraid, for reasons beyond my control. A Life Lost can be preordered in paperback, digital, and audio. The book continues where a Terrible Secret ended.  Thank you.

Fostering during the pandemic
Thank you for all your messages asking about fostering during the pandemic. It has been a very challenging time for us all. Because my books are written a year ahead of publication those covering the pandemic will appear next year. Stay safe xxx
