Catherine is a poet and award-winning writer for both children and young adults. She introduces poetry into her novels for younger readers whenever possible. Secretly, she longs to write a fantasy trilogy, but in the meantime she writes romance; her romance for young adults will be released in 2017 by Allen & Unwin.

Catherine regularly runs poetry workshops but also enjoys teaching fiction writing. As a long-time TAFE teacher of Professional Writing and Editing, Catherine has a lot of experience teaching adults.

She loves leading professional development workshops for teachers and runs structural editing and revision workshops as well.

Catherine has taught across the board – primary to adults – and enjoys that diversity.
