About Catherine

Catherine Gray is an award-winning writer and editor who worked on staff for magazines such as Cosmopolitan, GLAMOUR and Fabulous, for nearly a decade.

She went freelance in 2011 and works for Stylist, Stella, The Telegraph, Marie Claire, The Pool, The Guardian, Emerald Street, Women’s Health, BBC Earth, Mr & Mrs Smith and YOU magazine.

Catherine loves writing about psychology, travel, social trends and fascinating people. Assignments have included interviewing the people behind-the-cameras on Planet Earth II, running a B&B for 24 hours, anonymously reviewing European hotels, and talking 35 men into posing naked for a testicular cancer charity. She’s a contributing editor at TLL magazine and has organised and interviewed covers such as Joe Wicks, Binky Felstead and Holly Willoughby.

Her first book The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober was published by Aster Books on the 28th of December 2017. A tri-brid of a read, it mixes up memoir details of how Catherine quit alcohol in 2013, along with Buzzfeed-style listicles, illuminating interviews with top experts, and over-arching cultural comment. She hopes her book will help reinvent how Britain thinks about being alcohol-free.

Her second book is underway and due to be published in January 2019. Watch this space for more details.
