Writing Dangerously

Catrin CollierWelsh novelist Catrin Collier shares some of the stories that lie behind her novels, and the experience she garnered – and ignored to her cost – along the way, in a free event organised by the WGGB Welsh branch on 11 October 2017 in Cardiff.

Writing under the names Catrin Collier, Katherine John and Caro French (there are others she doesn’t often own up to), she has published 52 novels worldwide in English and translation.

Her Catrin Collier novel, Hearts of Gold, was filmed as a mini-series by BBC Worldwide and attracted an audience of 6.8 million in the UK.

She also adapted and scripted her Katherine John crime novel By Any Name into a feature, filmed by Tanabi Films.

Catrin is currently midway through a four-book series, The Tsar’s Dragons, centred on John Hughes, the Welshman who built an iron works for the Tsar in 1873 and founded the city of Hughesovka, now Donetsk, in the Ukraine. She is also working on a TV script.

The event is free and takes place from 8-9pm on 11 October 2017 in Cardiff. It is open to all, including non-WGGB members. Find out full details and register for your place.
