Catherine Fisher Born: 1957, UK.  Official Site Catherine Fisher was born in Newport, Wales. She graduated from the University of Wales, where she studied English, worked as a primary school teacher and in the field of archeology. Katherine Fisher`s fame was brought by her fantasy novels for children, as well as poetry collections. In 1989 she received the Welsh Arts Council Young Writers Award for her collection of poems Immrama. In the same year, Katherine won the Cardiff International Poetry Competition. Her first novel, The Conjuror`s Game (1990), was nominated for the Smarties Books prize. The trilogy "The Snow Wanderer" and the cycle "The Book of the Crow", written in the fantasy genre, also gained great popularity. But the most successful creation of Catherine Fisher to date is considered the trilogy "Oracle", which has been translated into more than twenty languages ​​and became an international bestseller. In this trilogy, magic is organically woven into a world created on the basis of Egyptian and Greek cultural elements. In her work, Catherine also addressed the themes of the Welsh epic Mabinogion, Scandinavian mythology (The Snow Wanderer) and the legends of King Arthur and the Holy Grail (Corbenic). Fisher still lives in Wales in his own house with two cats. She spends her free time reading, and also teaches the basics of writing for children. Her hobbies also include gardening, hiking and exploring ancient castle ruins throughout Britain. Despite the presence of fantastic elements in her work, in real life she does not seek to master new technologies: she does not use a computer when writing books and conducts research necessary for creativity in the old fashioned way - without the help of the Internet. In an interview published on the Random House website, Katherine Fisher advises aspiring writers: “Read a lot of literature, the kind you want to write. Read books from which your story originates. Describe what you want to write. Don`t be distracted by ignorant comments, but if someone knows the subject they are talking about and gives advice, listen to them. Believe in yourself. We are all capable of much more than we can imagine.
