Catherine Hokin

Catherine Hokin is the author of six World War II-inspired novels set in Berlin, her favorite city. Following a history degree at Manchester University, she worked in teaching, marketing, and politics, while waiting for a chance to do what she really wanted, which was to write full time. Her short stories have been published by iScot, Writers Forum, and Myslexia magazines, and she was the winner of the 2019 Fiction 500 Short Story Competition. She is a lover of strong female leads and a quest. Catherine now lives in Glasgow with her American husband. She has two grown-up children—one of whom lives, very conveniently, in Berlin—and a lifelong addiction to very loud music. Read more at, and find her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
