About the Author:

Kate grew up in Perths northern suburbs. She always wanted to be a writer and dreamed of the day shed see a novel with her name on it in a bookshop. After teaching English to kids who hated reading, she decided she would write books that those kids would want to read (or even if they didnt want to, would at least say it was salright). She lives on eleven acres with her partner Jason, two daughters, two dogs, a cat, a rabbit and six chickens. She still teaches English and is constantly writing stories.

Review:

"The novel is engaging, spirited and addictive. McCaffrey’s natural flair for storytelling is on full display here, as is her ability to write authentically from the perspective of teenagers."  Sun Herald



"The author’s writing is clear and strong; there is not a wasted word. [Tessa's] pain and confusion are developed well through the story. An involving read to begin a discussion around important issues."  Courier Mail

"McCaffrey pulls no punches . . . Tess is allowed to express in vivid terms her feelings of worthlessness and the enormous rush of power and sense of control . . . an original approach."  Magpies magazine



"Could easily have become an 'issues' book but McCaffrey has a way of capturing the teenage voice and making her characters real. A must-read for teenage girls."  The West Australian

"Not just another tale of a teenage girl with anorexia, Beautiful Monster is a powerful . . . [and] insightful novel . . . teenagers will connect to this sad but ultimately realistic story."  Fiction Focus
