Cath Bore was born in Chorley, Lancashire but escaped to Liverpool when she was nineteen.
She has worked as a radio station presenter and manager, tutor to disadvantaged young people and those in the youth offending system, music writer, civil servant – and cleaner in an old people’s home during her student days.
Cath has an MA from Liverpool John Moores University in creative writing.
She won Marie Claire Magazine’s Inspire & Mentor in Jan 2012 and also writes for Hello! Magazine on-line covering women’s body issues, The Liverpool Daily Post (shortlisted for the Online Media Awards 2012) covering politics, and appears on Liverpool’s City Talk 105.9 and Warrington’s Wire FM each week.
Cath has a short story in the ‘Off The Record 2’ anthology out later this year, in aid of the National Literacy Trust, which also features contributions from CWA Dagger in the Library 2012 winner Steve Mosby, CWA Chair Claire MacGowan, and crime writers Will Carver, Adrian McKinty and Stav Sherez.
She is jointly represented by Caroline Michel and Nelle Andrew
