Catherine spends her days writing children's picture books and drinking way too many cups of tea.


She loves reading and writing picture books that are full of music, noise and imagination. 


When she's not writing, Catherine decorates cakes to look like her favourite picture books. 


Catherine lives in Canberra with her husband, two children, dog and a noisy possum that lives in the garden shed.

Catherine is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) ACT Committee.
