Katy Regan - Author

About the Author

Katy Regan worked at 19 magazine for two years before joining Marie Claire in 2002. 'Highlights' in that position included spending ten days in the buff on a nudist resort and becoming a footballer's wife for a week – all in the name of investigative journalism.

In 2004 at the height of her career as the office roving reporter singleton, she fell accidentally pregnant by her best mate (who just remained a friend). Seeing the creative possibilities in this unconventional situation, her editor commissioned her to write a column - And then there were three… which proved so successful it ran for two years and inspired many a reader to write in to Katy with their life story. She has now taken her loyal following to her blog: The State She's In on the Marie Claire website. Her first novel One Thing Led to Another is out now.

She lives in Little Berkhamsted and shares care of her son Fergus with his dad.

The one piece of information he really wants, though, is the truth about why his father left. His family refuse to talk about that night but when Juliet inadvertently admits to him Liam is the only man she's ever loved, Zac decides to find him and give his mum a second chance at happy ever after. After all, nothing can stand in the way of true love . . .

Meet 10-year-old Zac - a boy on a mission - in Katy Regan's Little Big Man . . . You can't see the truth from the outside, that's what I've worked out. Ten-year-old Zac has never met his dad, who allegedly did a runner before he was born. But when his mum lets slip that he's the only man she's ever loved, Zac turns detective and, roping in his best friend, hatches a plan to find his father and give his mum the happy-ever-after she deserves. What he doesn't realize, though, is that sometimes people have good reasons for disappearing . . . Little Big Man is a story about family secrets and fierce, familial love. It's about growing up and being accepted; grief and lies, and the damage they can do. Most of all though, it's about a little boy determined to hunt down the truth; a boy who wants to give the Dad he's never met a second chance to be a father - and his mum a second chance at love.
