Event Recap: Cathy Cassidy Signing

Yesterday, my friend Kyra and I went to Waterstones Birmingham to meet Cathy Cassidy!

Cathy has been one of our favourite authors since we were about eight or nine... before we even knew each other! So when I texted Kyra and asked if she wanted to come with me, the answer was pretty much unanimous.

For pretty much a week, all of our texts, snapchats and tweets to each other have consisted of "ahhhhh", "omg we're going to meet Cathy Cassidy" and "WHICH BOOKS SHOULD I TAKE?!"

Cathy said that we could take all of our books if we wanted, but I didn't have room, so I picked four: Scarlett and Dizzy, because they were the first two I read, and then Cherry Crush and Summer's Dream, because they're my two faves out of the Chocolate Box Girls. I also bought Sweet Honey at the event.

We were let in in about clumps of five, so we were in the second clump, because we had gotten there about half an hour early. We flailed. A lot. And talked to people in the queue! It was awesome before we even got to meet Cathy.

Cathy is probably the nicest person I have ever met! She signed all five of my books, with little drawings and everything, then Kyra's. We got to talk to her quite a bit, which was really nice. She knew us from Twitter and my blog, which was really awesome! We talked about our favourites, and about what we thought could happen in Sweet Honey.

Me with Cathy, and one of my signed books! 

Thank you to Cathy Cassidy for signing our books and coming to Birmingham, and to Waterstones for hosting!


  1. We love this! Thank you Charli!

  2. Great post, Charli! It's always lovely to meet your favourite childhood authors, but there's something about Cathy Cassidy books that just stick with you long after you've finished reading - and the fact that she recognised you from To Another World is just plain AWESOME. :)
