Linton Children’s Book Festival – Events Page

Catherine Condie

Saturday 12th May, 11.15-12.00 (ages 8+)

Self-published author Catherine Condie talks about her books for children, taking a fresh look at writing, editing and publishing in the light of e-books and print on demand, and the opportunities for marketing these across the globe.

Born in Cambridge, Catherine Condie trained as a business linguist at Anglia Ruskin University and has worked in corporate communication, public relations, an in-house writer and magazine editor.

More recently working in business development and marketing, Catherine launched her books Whirl of the Wheel and The Switch, as e-books before publishing them in paperback. This session is suitable for anyone interested in writing or publishing stories.



Very pleased to announce the publication of The Switch, a fast moving adventure set in Paris for the over 11s.

While on a school exchange visit to Paris, a young teenager becomes an unexpected witness to a drugs raid. English exchange student Lily holds the key to a serious crime incident at the local Bar Tabac. Making her escape, she heads for the banks of the Seine. But now she’s not sure why and from whom she is running and what she discovers is not quite what she expects . . .
