Catherine Doyle grew up beside the Atlantic Ocean in the west of Ireland. Her love of reading began with great Irish myths and legends, and fostered in her an ambition to one day write her own. The Storm Keeper’s Island was her debut middle-grade novel, inspired by her real-life ancestral home of Arranmore Island, for which she won the Books Are My Bag Readers Award and was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards. Catherine lives in Galway.
