Katherine is the critically acclaimed author and illustrator of children’s picture book, ‘Squish Rabbit’, which has been named a CBC Children’s Choice book for 2012.

It has also been shortlisted for the 2012 Crichton Award and was named a Notable Book in the Early Childhood category of the CBCA Book of the Year Awards.

Katherine has had many short stories published in anthologies and magazines, and in 2010 was awarded a Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarship for her writing.

She adores reading, rabbits and anime, and thinks exclamation marks are evil. Her second book, ‘Brave Squish Rabbit’, will be released in the US and Australia in September and she is also currently working on her first Young Adult novel.
