Dear Cathy, What a wonderfully caring, patient and extraordinary woman you are! I find your recollections of the children you’ve fostered, and adopted heart-breaking and awakening. I’m currently waiting for my latest book to arrive – Too Scared to Tell. However saddened I am by their encounters in their short time, I’m also warmed by the love, kindness and compassion you show them.  I hope my email finds you well, and many thanks for your time. A massive fan and supporter.

Liebe cathy glass! Ich habe Ihre 3 Bücher gelesen und bin sehr begeistert davon gewesen. Ich warte schon gespannt auf das nächste Buch welches im Dezember auf deutsch veröffentlicht wird. Ich kann leider kein Englisch deshalb schreibe ich auf deutsch. Meine Tochter könnte es mir auch übersetzen. Die Geschichten ihrer Pflegekinder interessieren mich sehr da

Hi Cathy , I hope you are safe and well. I just wanted to share my news as I did on the Cathy glass group on Facebook! I have worked in the early years sector for 24 years. I am an avid reader of your books and you gave me the inspiration to apply for a job with the NSPCC to do more to help children in need.  I’m so happy to say today I received a call to say I had the job! So I just wanted to personally say you I inspired me and I’m sure so many others too.  can’t wait to read your next book!  Thanks Cathy. Kind Regards.

Hi Cathy, I have just finished reading Hidden and I wanted email and say thank you. I’m a foster carer and although still new at it only been doing it for a few years, I haven’t really had any good endings for these beautiful children. Your book has given me faith that I’m doing the right thing in standing up against the social workers and fighting for the rights of the children. You sound like an amazing foster carer and person and I hope my fostering skills and knowledge build up to yours and I can help more children. Thank you for writing about it all and keep up your amazing work that you do. I know it’s not easy and some days are harder than others but these children need people like you and I wish there was more of you. I look forward to reading more of your books.  I wish you and your amazing children all the best for the future. Kind regards.

Dear Cathy. I just wanted to email you and tell you that I have read a few of your books and there is none that I did not like.  I am not sure how you do it but you manage to make the reader not want to put your books down.  I find myself wishing that when I was put in care it had been with someone like you.  You seem as though you genuinely care about the children you foster. Kind Regards

Hi Cathy, I am 33 years old and have 6 children. I have always been a reader and your books they have really inspired me throughout the years. I tell my own children they can achieve anything  despite what they go through in life. I have a lot of your books in my collection and hope to collect more. I have  just finished Cut about Dawn the poor soul, I’m now reading Too Scared To Tell. I didn’t have the best upbringing myself but it wasn’t the worst. I thrive in life by loving my children to the fullest, teaching, guiding and enjoying them as children. Thank you again xx

I’m really enjoying reading your books especially through this difficult time of lock down. You do a great job fostering all those children.

Hello, I emailed you six years ago explaining how much I loved your books and how I wanted to be a social worker when I was older. I just thought I would let you know that I’ve just graduated university with a 2:1 in Social Work. It’s been the most amazing and hard journey and I cannot believe that I have become a social worker at the age of 21. Thank you for your inspiring and raw books that outline and show the difficulty with social work as a whole.  I hope you’re doing well in these difficult times and I just wanted to say thank you again for sharing your experiences. Kind regards,

Hi Cathy I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful books. I really don’t know what I’m going to do when I’ve read them all! I never really read until lockdown and now I can’t get enough of your books. Just finished reading about Zeena – The Child Bride. Right let’s start another one 7th one now.

Hi Cathy I was introduced to your books during the early part of coronavirus COVID-19.  The latest one being about Oskar. You are a very talented lady. My heart goes out to you, your family, and all the children you  have fostered over the years. I was abused as a little girl for many years. But it all came bubbling up a few months after the birth of my second child. I’m pleased it’s all in the past now. I do have moments where something will happen and I get upset. But I’m a survivor. I won’t let it haunt me. I just wish I’d had the courage to tell someone. I’m looking forward to reading your latest book that I believe comes out in September.

Hi Cathy, I have only started to read your books and I find them very eye opening.  You and your family are truly remarkable you have given so much love and kindness, and have bravely moved onto the next child needing the same. The updates you have provided are lovely.  It would be a major step forward if carers like yourself were asked to help make policy. You have so much experience. My mum was a member of the adoption panel for many years.  Thank you for your books.
Andrea, UK, 16/07/2020

Hello Cathy, I hope you are keeping well. And your three children are well. I would just like to say thank you for writing your books. You inspire me to be a foster carer one day. The job you do is amazing, and honestly you have helped so many children. They will never forget what you have done. I plan on reading every single book you have published. Take care.
Katie, 16/07/2020

Hi Cathy, I’m really enjoying reading your memoirs, thank you for writing about your experiences. It’s fascinating and uplifting to learn about all the children you’ve helped. You’re a really good person and it’s wonderful that you’ve worked to give so many children a better life.

Cathy: I have just finished your book Too Scared To Tell.  I found it very upsetting what happened to Oskar, but you, as always, handled his situation professionally.  I have now read ALL of your books and can’t wait to find out about Lucy.  I imagine you will handle her situation with great care and give her good advice.  May GOD continue to bless you and your family.  I will be on the lookout for your next book, which I will buy, read, and keep as I have done with all your books.  Hope it will be coming out soon.

Hello Cathy, I’m at the beach with my family and just finished Nobody’s Son. My eyes filled with tears of sadness and joy all at the same time! I would have taken Alex in a heartbeat! Thank you again for sharing!  Stay safe.

I have already read The Darkness Within and The Stalker – Lisa Stone thrillers – and I am now engrossed in The Doctor.

Cathy Glass I love your books. I’m 72 years old and still remember my time in care. I had three temp foster parents between being the age of 11 and 17. The system has changed so much. Thank you.

Hi there, I love your books!  I am working my way through them all. I can’t begin to tell you how much of an impact they’ve had on me! Firstly, they’ve blessed me with perspective. The knowledge that some children have survived such horrible treatment certainly inspires hope, but also an understanding that one’s circumstances are not always as difficult as they seem, that someone out there has suffered more. Secondly, your books have seriously helped me understand myself better. I certainly haven’t suffered some of the tragic things that some of the children in your books have but I could strangely relate to so many of them. I thought there was something broken in me. Your books have shown me that it’s not a brokenness in me but more of a reflection of the environment I grew up in. No fault of my parents as they were just living out what they had learnt. It’s just been such an experience reading your books! They’ve given me perspective and understanding. The world would be a better place if people had hearts like yours!
