Description

DESCRIPTION

Dorothy Parker once said, “If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.

Welsh 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. 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 on UK network TV. She adapted and scripted her Katherine John crime novel By Any Name into a feature. Filmed by Tanabi Films, it will receive its first US screening at the 2016 Action on Film International Film Festival, Monrovia, CA.

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