The release of the 10th Byte Series novel also marks the 10th year of Cat’s publishing journey.

Qubyte is entered in this years Ngaio Marsh Awards for Best Crime Novel.

Cat can be found in Writer Plot Bookshop most weekday mornings where she is writer in residence. She is also co-founder of Writers Plot Bookshop and hosts two writing groups there a month.

Upper Hutt Central Library is hosting the Qubyte launch on March 22nd at 6:30PM at Upper Hutt Library, Fergusson Drive.
