About BiTE Publishing

BiTE Publishing was set up by Cathy Farr following the success of her first two self-published books, Moon Chase and Moon Crossing.  It was while she was writing Moon Chase Bridge Reader Edition, and its accompanying workbook, for improving readers and children with speech, language and communications needs (SLCN) that she made the move from self-publishing company Grosvenor House Publishing and brought production in-house.

BiTE, based in South Wales, now aims to publish at least one title per year with the main focus being on subtle magic and fantasy – the almost believable, but as Terry Pratchett once said, ‘Just because you know how it’s done, doesn’t mean it’s not magic.’

Alongside book publishing, BiTE also offers creative writing workshops (Bridge Writing) and author visits.  Cathy, herself, teaches regularly in primary schools (in the main) and is happy to visit schools across the region and into the South West of England.
