Casey Watson, who writes under a pseudonym, is a specialist foster carer. She and her husband, Mike, look after children who are particularly troubled or damaged by their past. While in their care, Casey and Mike guide the foster children through a specially designed behavioural programme, enabling them to be moved on, either back to their parents on into mainstream foster care. Before becoming a foster carer Casey was a behaviour manager for her local comprehensive school. It was through working with these 'difficult' children - removed from mainstream classes for various reasons - that the idea for her future career was born. Casey is married with two children and three grandchildren.
