Her first play, Being Mr Wickham, premiered to sell-out audiences in 2019.

Catherine holds a Master’s degree in Film and when not dodging the furies of the guillotine, can be found by following the distant strains of Dean Martin. She lives in Yorkshire atop a ludicrously steep hill with a rakish gent and a very woolly dog.
