Catherine is the Sydney-based author of middle-grade novel, Quark’s Academy and picture book, Something for Fleur. Both books are being released in Turkey and are available online in the USA and Canada. Both books were selected for 2019 NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge. Quark’s Academy was also one of the few selected texts for the CBCA Readers Cup for 2019 and shortlisted for the 2019 Western Australian Young Reader’s Book Award.
She adores teaching writing to young people and is available for school visits. Catherine has been a speaker at several events including the Sharjah Children’s Festival – twice, CBCA events, as well as writing festivals including Writers, Unleashed. Children’s books, in Catherine’s opinion, are the best. They are the ones that shape us, give us hope, help us find our place in the world…and take us away to wonderful places. They can also be read by everyone, which she loves.
