Queen of Teen author Cathy Cassidy will be visiting the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) on June 20th to discuss her work and career.

The best-selling children’s author, who has her own exclusive fan club known as the Dream Team, says she is ‘So excited’ about this after-school event at the UCLan in Preston.

Coventry born Cathy wrote her first picture book for her little brother when she was eight. She later went to work on Jackie magazine and for 12 years was the agony aunt for teen mag Shout. She has written 20 books including a series of three books about Daizy Star for younger readers. She likes to hang out in her tepee on summer nights

Following the talk will be a Q&A session and the chance for fans to quiz Cathy and find out about how she works, where inspiration comes from and why daydreaming matters.

Cathy will be signing her books plus there will be refreshments and cupcakes! Promises to be an exciting event
