Catherine Kirkham-Sandy, a Year 9 student at The Maynard School Exeter, has had her first novel published at the age of just 14 and is doing a book signing on Saturday 11 February at Waterstones Exeter High Street / Cathedral Close branch from 11.30 am.
Catherine has also been elected as member of the prestigious Society of Authors (admission by achievement or qualification) and she is the youngest ever member, as an author who completed and submitted her work for publication when 13 years old. To date the youngest ever member was 14 years old at the same point in his career.
Catherine’s book is entitled ‘A Tale to be Remembered’ and relates a story that begins and ends in the quadrangles of Oxford University, with the main story originating from a student’s research project into the society and history of two very different islands believed to have existed in the mid-nineteenth century in the mysterious region of the Bermuda Triangle.
The aspiring author is currently studying for her GCSEs at The Maynard, and has always had a flair for English, which she says stems from being an only child living in the country and spending a lot of time alone. She has a vivid imagination and used it well to create imaginary characters for company, constructing stories and scenarios from a very young age.
