Cathy McGough lives in Stratford, Ontario, Canada with her husband, son and two kitties Layla and Rosie.
So tell me about your upcoming release, A Mathematical State of Grace. What is the premise of the story?
This is my first venture into the YA genre. It’s about a sixteen year old girl named Grace Greenway who is a mathematical prodigy and who lives only for numbers (hence she doesn’t spent much time socializing.) However, she does have a massive crush on Vincente Marino who is an all-star sporty type of guy (who she meets because she helps him with his homework.) They are thrown together by an event, which results in them having to battle the elements and to learn to work together as a team. And of course, there is the falling in love.
What was the idea that prompted you to write this book?
The characters of Grace and Vincente – and in particular the ending of the book just presented itself to me in a flash. I feverishly recorded what I saw, and then had to figure out how to get my characters to that place.
