Hello and welcome to my website.
I began my working life as a small-animal vet, treating a variety of animals from cats and dogs to rats and rabbits, and even a marmoset, before turning to writing fiction. I can’t believe that I’m about to start writing the tenth book set in Talyton St George, the fictional market town inspired by my love of the Devon countryside where I learned how to ride a horse, milk a cow and give a sheep a pedicure. I live with my two grown-up children, two Border Terriers and a cat in a village near Winchester, Hampshire. I’m planning to move back to Devon so I can live somewhere just like Talyton St George, ideally in a thatched longhouse with ponies in the paddock and chickens in the garden.
About Cathy Woodman
One of my earliest memories is of eating cherries in an orchard with my grandfather who managed a fruit farm. I was born in Kent, but think of Devon as home because I was brought up there. I was fascinated by animals and books...
