Cat Connor is a Cantabrian who’s lived most of her life as a northerner. (Makes it a bit hard when the Crusaders play the Hurricanes but apart from that it’s not too bad.) She shares her office with a retired racing greyhound called Romeo and Missy the fat grey cat. She believes music is as essential to life as breathing. (Luckily the animals don’t mind loud music.)
Hosting a fortnightly writing workshop at the Upper Hutt City Library: A Writer’s Plot, is something Cat truly enjoys, and she’s been doing so for 3 (almost 4) years.
A coffee addict, lover of pinot, and Jose Cuervo tequila, Cat has been described as irresistible, infectious, and addictive.
Cat is a member of International Thriller Writers, Masters of Horror, and Backspace.
Her 6th book, databyte, was longlisted for the 2015 Ngaio Marsh best crime novel Award.
Her first New Zealand set novel is about to launch through ‘Writer’s Plot Readers Read’ bookshop in Upper Hutt. The kiwi novel ‘Nothing Happens Here’ is written under the pen name ‘DJ Lane’.
