About Catherine

Catherine lives in Sydney in a soon-to-be-renovated inner city domestic palace with her husband, four kids and a large neurotic hairy dog. She knows that having four children does not automatically make her an expert in parenting. Catherine thinks her kids will reach adulthood despite, rather than because of her; she describes her children as being like little meteors, hurtling along on their own trajectories, undisturbed by the background noise of her exhortations and heading determinedly towards their own destinations.

Catherine is also an accomplished artist, having successfully sold out her pieces at Sydney exhibitions. Amazingly, Catherine still finds an occasional moment to paint and draw. Currently, Catherine is at the submit-to-publishers-and-wait stage of publishing a children's picture story book featuring glorious pictures of the aforementioned hairy neurotic dog.
