Catherine Doyle was born in the West of Ireland in 1990. She holds a BA in Psychology and an MA in English. As a child she was an annoying smarty-pants with an overactive imagination. She feels lucky to have now found a healthy outlet for her tendency to make up stories. Her debut YA novel, Vendetta, is the first in a trilogy. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet and classic mafia culture, the novel takes place in modern-day Chicago, where Catherine’s mother grew up, and was published by Chicken House in January 2015. Her first middle grade novel, The Storm Keeper’s Island, published in July 2018, tells the story of magic on Arranmore Island.
Catherine enjoys travelling, running, and spending time with her friends and family. You can find her on Twitter at @doyle_cat.
