CATHERINE RYAN HOWARD is a 32-year old writer from Cork, Ireland.
Catherine currently studies English at Trinity College Dublin as a mature student and works with Penguin Ireland as a freelance social media marketer.
She is represented by Jane Gregory of Gregory and Company and is putting the finishing touches to her first thriller about a serial killer.
Since 2010, Catherine has self-published two travel memoirs – Mousetrapped and Backpacked – and a “how to”, Self-Printed: The Sane Person’s Guide to Self-Publishing.
Before all that, Catherine worked as an administrator in the Netherlands and (very briefly) 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 still wants to be a NASA astronaut when she grows up.
