Catherine Doyle grew up in the West of Ireland. She holds a first-class BA in Psychology and a first-class MA in Publishing. She is the author of the Young Adult Blood for Blood trilogy (Vendetta, Inferno and Mafiosa), which is often described as Romeo and Juliet meets the Godfather. It was inspired by her love of modern cinema. Her debut Middle Grade novel, The Storm Keeper's Island (Bloomsbury, 2018), is an adventure story about family, bravery and self-discovery. It is set on the magical island of Arranmore, where her grandparents grew up, and is inspired by her ancestors' real life daring sea rescues.

Aside from more conventional interests in movies, running and travelling, Catherine also enjoys writing about herself in the third-person

“There is beauty everywhere; even in the dark, there is light, and that is the rarest kind of all.”
Catherine Doyle, Vendetta

“Maybe I am looking at you,’ he whispered. 'Maybe I always have been.”
Catherine Doyle, Inferno

“This life is so complex that we rarely get to be the people we are truly meant to be. Instead, we wear masks and put up walls to keep from dealing with the fear of rejection, the feeling of regret, the very idea that someone may not love us for who we are deep in our core, that they might not understand the things that drive us.”
Catherine Doyle, Vendetta

“The world spins. We stumble on. It is enough.”
Colum McCann, Let the Great World Spin

“In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them.
Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness.
Her raven boys.”
Maggie Stiefvater, The Dream Thieves

“Why are you crying?"
"Because," she whispered, her voice shaking, "you remind me of what the world ought to be. What the world can be.”
Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight

“And Ronan was everything that was left: molten eyes and a smile made for war.”
Maggie Stiefvater, The Dream Thieves

“I know you think you're a punk," Declan said. "But you aren't nearly as bad ass as you think you are."
"Oh, go to hell," Ronan snapped, just as the alter boys broached the rear doors.
"Guys," Matthew pleaded. "Be holy.”
Maggie Stiefvater, The Dream Thieves
