Cat Walker is thirty-something and has been writing poetry since she was knee-height to the proverbial grasshopper.
Cat has been inspired by Mary Dorcey the Irish poet, Mimi Khalvati's Poetry School classes, and Barry MacSweeney whose first book of poetry she bought from North Yorkshire County Library for 20p when she was 7.
Cat is overly-romantic, passionate about true meaning in life and love, and a terrible cook.
She is concerned with the seemingly unending complexity of that most simple and basic of human necessities: loving and being loved.
Born and bred in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, she has lived in London, Ballydehob and Melbourne while putting together this collection. She has one cat, Oscar.
Cat is currently writing her first novel.
