Sometimes, when it comes to fighting Evil, one genius just isn't enough. This is the second book in the thrilling, high-tech trilogy about Cadel Piggott, which began with Evil Genius and concludes with Genius Wars. She became a writer because she loves reading, and also loves history, films, TV and gossip. She has a BA Hons in medieval history and gets her ideas from everywhere, particularly good science fiction films. Catherine writes whenever she gets a moment and could write for eight hours straight if she had the chance.
