Cat Gray is an author and freelance journalist, based in London and rural Ireland. She studied English literature at Trinity College Dublin, followed by an M.Phil at the University of Cambridge. She started her journalism career at the age of 19, interviewing musicians and celebrities in between attending classes, then went on to be an editor at a series of glossy magazines, including Harper’s Bazaar and Town & Country.
Since she was very young, she’s always believed that there’s an adventure just around the corner, and this is reflected in her magical, middle-grade fantasies. Cat Gray’s first novel, Spellstoppers, was published by Usborne in July 2022; The Spirit Snatcher, her second stand alone novel aimed at middle graders, will follow in September 2023.
