CATHERINE RYAN HOWARD is a writer from Cork, Ireland.
Catherine currently studies English at Trinity College Dublin as a somewhat mature student. (She’s 32.)
She is represented by Jane Gregory of Gregory and Company and is putting the finishing touches to her first thriller about a serial killer.
Catherine has self-published two light-hearted travel memoirs: Mousetrapped (2010), inspired by the eighteen months she spent working in Walt Disney World, Florida, and Backpacked (2012), the tale of her reluctant trip around Central America. In 2014, she published the third edition of her pragmatic “how to”, Self-Printed: The Sane Person’s Guide to Self-Publishing.
Before all that, Catherine worked as an administrator in the Netherlands and a campsite courier in France, stapled things together in a variety of offices and, for her entire adolescence, was obsessed with the idea of becoming a virologist. She wants to be a NASA astronaut when she grows up.
