On Monday 8th February Year 7 girls were invited to Wilmington Girls Grammar School to see the bestselling author Cathy Cassidy. Cathy is the author of the “Chocolate Box series” and her books have sold millions all over the world. She spoke to the audience about what inspires her to write, how she became an author and how daydreaming can lead to a rewarding career.
The girls took part in a quiz to see which of her characters they were most like and she encouraged them to look at her website where they could enter competitions, read her blog and watch the Cathy Cassidy TV YouTube channel.
After taking questions from the audience, Cathy signed copies of her books for the girls.
