ARE YOU A CATHY CASSIDY SUPERFAN?

Cathy says:
On tour, I am lucky enough to meet some very inspiring readers... talented, enthusiastic, knowledgable, and creative. One of those readers was Miriam, who is a super-keen fan of the Chocolate Box Girls series... 

Miriam says:

My first Chcolate Box Girls book was Coco Caramel and it totally captured my imagination! From that point on, my life seemed to revolve around the Tanberrys. While looking at Cathy's website I found the link to the CCTV Youtube channel and loved it... it was as if the sisters came to life!

I thought that everyone should know about the books, so I made an advert for Coco Caramel; it was about a minute long. That was in October, and now I have four adverts - for Cherry Crush, Marshmallow Skye and Summer's Dream as well - I got a bit carried away! I'm very proud of them, and my work is done - until Sweet Honey comes out, that is!


Watching the characters on CCTV does change the way you think of them, and I'd originally imagined them to be quite different... so I decided to fill a notebook with pictures, drawings and descriptions of absolutely EVERYTHING in the series! I've included all of the sisters, and also the boys; families; animals... I've even done adverts for the places and made a fake newspaper clipping!

When I met Cathy I showed her the notebook and she loved it - she explained that she used to make project books like this when she was younger, and that even now she keeps visual notebooks to help her develop a character, book or series. That was great to hear! She asked me to write something for the DREAMCATCHER blog-zine, and I jumped at the chance!

Cathy says:
Miriam reminded me a lot of what I was like at her age... I would fill notebooks and scrapbooks with drawings, comic-book stories, magazine ideas and stories, and when I found a book or a series of books I loved, I was over the moon. I'd have loved to meet one of my favourite authors back then, but sadly I never did. These days I love meeting my readers and finding how just how cool and talented they are!

  1. Do I really have to be asked? Of COURSE I'm a CC Superfan! I read all her books, I'm always on her website and on here, I'm purely addicted. All you have to do is say Cathy and I forget anything else I was thinking about! Pretty much everything I do has Cathy Cassidy somewhere in it. I just love how everything she writes has something dreamy in it. CC books are my kryptonite!
