About the author

Cat McGill

Hello! Thanks for reading my book :) I’m Cat, I’m a musician and writer, and a mum to two children with Special Needs. I’m autistic myself as well, though I wasn’t diagnosed until my late thirties. Ever since I can remember I’ve been fascinated by people - their relationships with one another, what makes them tick, how they learn, etc. I decided when I was nine that I was going to study psychology at university, and - never having been able to make my mind up whether I wanted to be a musician or a psychologist - I have bounced between the two ever since.

My debut book is called ‘Me, the Boy, and The Monster’, and is an honest account of the first couple of years with our adopted son, and the trauma he faced, and still faces.  I’ve tried to pull together a few of the psychological theories that have really helped me to understand Tickle’s behaviour, and explain them in an accessible way, giving examples from our day to day life.

As I write this I’m about to undertake a project called ‘Adopting a Musical Approach’ where I’m looking at how I can use music to support adopted children and their families. For more information do have a look at my website, or say hi on social media - you can find me @folkycat on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
