Mrs Catherine Cooper

 
Catherine writes for children but her books are suitable for all ages. Her award winning Jack Brenin series, is an extraordinary, magical fantasy adventure.

I am based in Shropshire and write books for children.  Having taught for 29 years in Primary Education I'm happy to offer an author visit for any primary aged class, from Reception to Y6.  My first book, The Golden Acorn, won Brit Writers' Best Story for Children and the Brit Writers' Writer of the Year 2010 awards.  It has now had the film rights purchaced by a Hollywood film company.  I co-illustrate most of my books with my husband.

There are now six books published in the Jack Brenin series and one subsidary ebook, with more to follow soon. The Golden Acorn is now a National Literacy KS2 guided reading book.  I am also a Patron of Reading for a primary school in Shropshire.  Please visit my website for more information at www.pengridion.co.uk
