Catherine Webb was born 1986 and is a British author, educated at the Godolphin and Latymer School, London, and the London School of Economics.

Webb was just fourteen years old when she completed Mirror Dreams, written during her school summer holidays. She sent her manuscript to a publisher who liked it so much that the book was published in 2002, and Webb was named Young Trailblazer of the Year by the magazine Cosmo GirlUK. She has published eight YA novels as Catherine Webb, six fantasy novels as Kate Griffin, and two science fiction novels under the name Claire North. She has been favourably compared with Terry Pratchett (one of her literary heroes) and Philip Pullman.

Webb prides herself on the scientific and historical accuracy of her Horatio Lyle books, which have been acclaimed by reviewers and readers. A lifelong Londoner, she enjoys walking through the areas she describes in her books - Bethnal Green, Clerkenwell and along the River Thames - comparing the city of London as it is now to how it was at various times in the past.
