How would you sum up
The Catalyst? It’s in part about secrecy – about learning to cope with the knowledge that if anyone truly knew you, they would think you repulsive, and knowing that they would be at least half- right. But I also wanted to write a teenage girl who had far more important things to deal with than the usual pressures put on teenage girls: who wasn’t beautiful, and wasn’t well- liked, and yet could not care less, because she was too busy trying to stop a war.
How long did you work on it?
From writing the first scene to finishing the proofs, almost exactly two years. I wrote it on weekends, after I’d finished my homework, and in my lunch breaks at school.
How did you go about building the world of The book?
I knew my main character would be a monster, and I set about altering the world I knew to accommodate her. I wanted to set the wonders of magic against the half- amused world- weariness of 21st century London. And doing that turned out to require an apocalypse, which is always fun to write.

Which SF/ Fantasy authors would you like to be compared to in a dream review?
Oh, any of them. All of them. My favourite authors when I was younger were always SFF: JK Rowling, naturally, Derek Landy, and Stuart Hill, who wrote the Icemark Chronicles, which I used to read over and over. And of course I love the classics: The Midwich Cuckoos, The War Of The Worlds.
