A prize-winning novel from a bestselling author.
Catherine Robertson, writer of bestselling chick lit novels, was born in Wellington and attended Victoria University of Wellington. She left New Zealand for a while to live in San Francisco and Buckinghamshire, but is now back home. She lives in a house by the sea with her husband who sheds bicycle bits, a tan bitzer dog who sheds hair, a cat who sheds bits of whatever it's just eaten, and two sons who shed all of the above. Her 'real job' is owning and running a marketing consultancy with her husband. Her debut novel, The Sweet Second Life of Darrell Kincaid, hit the New Zealand bestseller list immediately, making its way to number one. She quickly followed up with The Not So Perfect Life of Mo Lawrence. The third volume of her trilogy is called The Misplaced Affections of Charlotte Fforbes. Hailed as 'a new national treasure', Catherine was a featured author at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair. Two of her books have been published in Germany and her first has also been published in Italy.
