About Me

I started Kids Vs. Copy in 2016 to celebrate all things literary and family (and the inevitable chaos that comes with being a mum who spends her days dreaming up plot lines…) We’re big on imagination in our house and we love to explore the Bath countryside where we live.

In May 2017 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 bowel cancer. Since then i’ve been trying to put my life back together again by writing about my treatment and experiences as a mum living with cancer. In doing so I hope to raise awareness in the importance of an early diagnosis for this type of cancer, especially in young women.

I also blog about the realities of modern family life, as well as subjects that are close to all our hearts – days out, imaginative play, books we enjoy and, of course, writing romantic fiction.

It’s honest, amusing in parts (I hope!) and relatable.

 

In April 2017 I was invited to become a Huff Post UK Blogger and a number of my articles have since featured in the Lifestyle & Parenting sections. My blogs have also been featured in Selfish Mother and Mumsnet.

Catherine is a former TV Producer who started out as a Runner on Blind Date. She moved into Music TV (MTV, T4) before ending up in movie and drama production, with a brief (two year) flirtation at the BBC’s Natural History Unit thrown in there as well.

During her career she’s been lucky enough to travel all over the world, working with the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, MTV, Walden Media, Warner Bros & 20th Century Fox, amongst many others. Catherine is now mummy to two little girls who keep her on her toes far more than any stroppy pop star or A-Lister.
