I absolutely love your books, Your recent book An Innocent Baby arrived on the 16th September I finished it at 10pm on the 17th. I was in tears and had a bottle of wine open. It was the most heart-breaking story of yours I have ever read. I would just like to say you are such an amazing mother, foster carer and writer.  I have a little girl of my own and I hug her a little tighter every night knowing that she hasn’t suffered or ever will suffer the way those poor children you have foster do! My heart breaks for them every time I read your books!  I wish them a better world and better life. They truly deserve it Love

Hi Cathy, I so looked forward to your latest book An Innocent Baby and read it in one day. Thank you for another amazing and touching book which makes one appreciate what one has. I hope Marcy Day and Haylea are doing well and best wishes for their future. Also best wishes to you and your children and especially to your daughter Lucy. I love her personality and strength who seems to come through in the books.

Hi Cathy, I’ve just finished reading your book ‘Where has Mummy gone’ and just wanted to say that you have an amazing knowledge of how children from vulnerable backgrounds think and feel. I have read most of your books and coming from a care background myself – both career-wise and on a personable level I was really gripped by this particular book. I was also adopted at an older age and I was very appreciative of your insight as to the difficulties this can present for the child. I loved reading each of your books and enjoyed reading about your own three children. I’m also intrigued as to how the British care system works as opposed to what happens here in South Africa. Thanks for hours of interesting reading and for taking the trouble to educate readers about vulnerable and at risk children. Looking forward to the next book!

Hello Cathy! Me and my mother absolutely love your books, I can’t get enough of them and have several in my collection. You inspire me to wish to foster, as do some of my mother’s friends.  I just wanted to say thank you for doing everything you can for every single child, person, and soul that has come across your path. You are a huge inspiration and I hope to one day raise my children as respectful, kind, and compassionate as you and children are.  Say hello to Paula, Adrien, and Lucy for me! Warm regards

Dear Cathy. I just finished reading Damaged. I was speechless. I’m still crying Cathy. I can’t believe the things happen to that little girl. You are such a wonderful woman. Not enough words to say thank you for the things you did for Jodie. Stay Safe Regards

Hi Cathy, I am 59 yrs. old and must of read about 2 books in my life. Just by chance I bought one of your books and I’m now onto my 8th book. Your books are so good and the fostering you do is fantastic. I total admire what you do and will continue reading your books. Many thanks
Judith, 30/08/2021

Dear Cathy, I have just got my hands on your collection of books and am truly in awe of all the work you have done with so many children. I have so far enjoyed Nobody’s Son most, and am excited to read the rest of your series. Kind regards

Dear Cathy, I am 29 years old and my auntie is sending this email for me. I am blind with cerebral palsy and just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed listening to your audible books. I am looking forward to innocent baby in September. I have read 13 of your books so far and loved them all.  I also have a cat called Jeremy I know you like cats too. Regards
Lexi, 25/08/2021

Good morning. I am in awe of your amazing books. I purchased one of your books from my local charity shop, The Cottage, and instantly the cover and the blurb got me hooked. I read your fantastic book within a day. Totally was not expecting that ending but as a student social worker it got to me and had me gasping. Truthfully, I used to find it hard to read a good book. I love anything thrilling, with a touch of suspense and unexpected twists. You are my favourite author. Kindest regards,
Freya, 24/08/2021

Hi! I just want to say that your books are absolutely fantastic! I’ve recently finished ‘A baby’s cry’ in 3 days, I was hooked from the first page! I scoured the charity shops for some more but had no luck then found myself in WHSmith looking again! I came out with the 3 they had on the shelf and have just started ‘A Terrible Secret’. Your books are amazingly written and I’ve now found myself a massive fan!  Thank you for your amazing stories, it’s great to get a real life insight into the fostering world. My heart goes out to you and all those children! With love, your new biggest fan.

Hi Cathy. Thank you for sharing your fostering stories. Over the last few years I have listened to all of them on Audible whilst in the car or on the train due to travelling quite a bit with work. You are truly inspirational and because of you and listening to your stories, I started on my adoption journey almost 18 months ago and last Thursday was approved at panel to adopt. I have a couple of friends who have adopted children but due to being single and also a little older I never thought that it was an option for me. After listening to your books I decided to look into it further and eventually took the plunge. I always wanted to be a mum but it never happened for me, and having worked for 22 years with complex and traumatised children, and having listened to your stories, I believe I can make a difference for a little one and also be a Mum. So thank you because you have been part of my journey to get here and if I can be even half the mum you are, I know I’ll be able to make a difference. I look forward to listening to your next story. Kind regards
Kirstin, 24/08/2021

Hi Cathy, I’m so glad to read the update on Melody, my first book. Thank you for giving children hope for their future. My next book will be ‘Cut’, which I know is going to be a harder read. Take care. Bye.
Steven, 23/08/2021

Hi Thank you for your books! I started reading them around 3 weeks ago and already finished 2. I loved every page of both books and intend buying more from your collection. I was in care from the age of 14 first by being in a children’s home to then being placed with my amazing foster mum. Whilst in her care I progressed so much in many ways and reading your books give me hope that there are still great foster parents out there!  You are amazing and I look forward to buying and reading more of your books.
Jenni, 23/08/2021

Hi Cathy I am partly deaf and disabled with CRPS. I just want to tell you that you are really good author. I have read four books of yours and I’m really loving them. You are the best writer!!!  Thanks for doing an awesome job.
Kimberly, 19/08/2012

Hi, I am a huge fan of your fostering books. I’ve read nearly all of them now and I’m planning on becoming a foster carer. Your books really make a difference and I love following up on each child to see how they’re doing. I’m amazed at how each child has such a unique story. Thanks for what you do, both for children and for us readers, too. You’re one incredible person! Sending love,
Cailey, USA, 18/08/2021

Hi Cathy, I hope you are well.  I am emailing you regarding your books. I think you are an amazing writer, and as I am a senior carer I can relate to quite a few of your stories. Well done and keep up the good work. Best wishes.
Pam, 17/08/2021

Hi. I just wanted to say how much I love your books! I am a case manager in foster care here in Australia and coming to the completion of my social work degree. I have read almost all of your books (I have 4 to go) And I truly admire everything that you are and everything that you stand for. Thank you for being such an inspiration! Warm Regards
Anastasia, Australia, 15/08/2021

I love reading your Lisa Stone suspense stories. Once I start reading I don’t want to put them down. Very good stories all of them and well done to you for writing them. Thank you.
Sandra, 13/08/2021

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for ‘The Cottage’. It has been a number of years since I have read a book as I have been unable to find anything that gripped me. I bought ‘The Cottage’ hoping to read whilst on holiday. I thought I would read the 1st chapter before I went, and needless to say I loved the book and had finished it before my holiday. I have now purchased Taken. hank you again, I have a renewed love for reading. Kind regards
Heather, 12/08/2021

Hi Cathy I have read a number of your fostering books and also The Cottage. I work as a TA in a special needs school.  Your stories are inspiring and incredible and as usual I am hooked. I see many looked after children in the school I’m working in. So the experiences you have had are actually teaching me. Showing me the kind of things I should be looking out for. I got close to one child at the school like Oskar and so did his teacher. Kind regards
Jayne, 06/08/2021

Hi Cathy I’m 75yrs old. I have never been into reading but I saw your books on kindle and started reading them. I can’t put them down. I have just finished Innocent. I’ve only got about three to read. Keep up the good work.
Angela, 31/07/2021

Dear Cathy, Oskar’s story horrified me & broke my heart but it was wonderful to read, how he came out of his shell slowly but surely, with the safety & love you provided. I wept & wept at the end.  It was simply beautiful. Thank you for such an inspiring book. It just goes to show what safety & true love for a child will do. Best Regards
Karen, 27/07/2021

Good evening, I have just read A Terrible Secret in less than 24 hours, as always I couldn’t put it down! I have a friend who fosters and I told him about your books.  He took a photo of the one I was reading today and is going to look himself.
Jo, 27/07/2021

Hi Cathy I am just emailing you to say how much I love reading your books, once I start I can’t put them down. I read one of your books in a day, it was that good. You are an amazing author/writer. Can’t get enough of your books.
Trisha, 21/07/2021

Just finished A Life Lost, terrific book, looking forward to your next one! Hope you know, you cannot ever retire!
Barb, 20/07/2021

Hello, I am a very fond reader and have so far read 17 of your books, Damaged being the latest. I am a little lost for words from reading this one. You are one incredible person, your children, are incredible. You have made the most amazing difference to so many children lives. I have been a teaching assistant for the last 6 years and have a love for children like you do. You honestly are such an inspiration and I want to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for making such a difference to children’s lives.
Abbie, UK, 18/07/2021

Hello, I am an early years’ practitioner and have worked with children who have witnessed domestic abuse and are recovering, so I am no stranger to working with individuals managing trauma. I am absolutely amazed by your work and have now read 11 of your books, Nobody’s Son being the last one. Thanks for your time, you truly are so inspiring.
Amy, Scotland, 18/07/2021

Hello Cathy, I just read your amazing new Lisa Stone book ‘The Cottage’ today while the sun was shining here in Northern Ireland. It was fantastic. All your books are amazing, I’ve bought and read every single book you’ve written, but ‘The Cottage’ was just something else. I couldn’t put it down. I cannot wait until your next Lisa Stone book, please hurry lol. Until then I’m reading your latest fostering memoire; which I also love. Thank you
Nicole, Northern Ireland, 18/07/2021

Good afternoon Cathy, I hope you are well. I want to say thank you, over the last 5 years I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your books. You first came into my life when I was in secondary school, I’ll be honest I wasn’t the biggest reader. My Mum had brought CUT and I think it was the first chapter book I had ever read, I was hooked on your writing style and the way you make your readers want to find out what happens next. Years passed and I didn’t pick up a book again until my mother passed away. I joined the library as a distraction and fell in love with your writing all over again. It kept me grounded and enabled me to see that although I had suffered there are others who have had it far worse. I have read the majority of your books and I have just finished A Life Lost.  I felt compelled to reach out and send my condolences. Thank you again for everything you have done, you seem like such a kind and loving soul. You have inspired me as a person and I feel you have been with me through some of the most difficult times in my life. I cannot thank you enough. I wish you and your family all the best.
Lots of love Sadé, UK, 15/07/2021

Dear Ms. Glass, I just finished reading your very moving book, “A Long Way From Home”.  Thank you for sharing the incredible, heart-breaking story of Anna.  With much gratitude
Gary, 15/07/2021

Just a tiny message of support. Your books are honestly amazing, I’ve never really picked up a book to read unless forced, but your books have sucked me in and find myself ordering more and more. I’ve just finished reading Damaged, what a truly heart-breaking story but my goodness how amazing you were with Jodie! As a victim of sexual abuse I know how hard it must have been for her to gain trust in you and open up. I truly inspire you and I hope life brings you so much happiness. Credit to your children to!! I’m about to read Lucy’s story! I’m sure so will enjoy it as much as I have the others I’ve read! Keep writing your amazing stories! Sending love and support. Kind regards
Becky, 12/07/2021

Hello Cathy, I felt that I needed to message you to tell you how much I love your books. I find them inspirational. For young people/children to go through what they have and come out the other side better people is inspiring to read. I was a person that had a rough/abusive childhood and still suffer problems because of it today. I have just finished reading INNOCENT. What a heart aching story. You do a wonderful job in caring for these children and helping them through some of the toughest times in their lives. You should be very proud of yourself. We need more people in this world like you. I love your style of writing. Your books are fantastic and inspiring. I really enjoy reading them and find them hard to put down. Thank you for all the hard work you put into helping children. Well done. Great job.
Cassie, Australia, 11/07/2021

Ms. Cathy Glass, I have been meaning to write you an email but I have just been a tad busy. I recently started going back to school, but before that I was reading your books every single night. I love every single one I have read. You did some awesome work. My heart hurt a few times, but I am so glad that you helped every single one of them babies. I would love to chat with you, you have lived a very interesting life. Thank you
Jennifer, USA, 10/07/2021

I have just finished another one of your books A Baby’s Cry. You and your children/family are absolutely amazing! I have sat and cried through the full last chapter! Having children myself I would be exactly the same! Being a foster mum & family is just something else you should be so proud of what you do for them all. Take care god bless
