Cate Whittle, Author
Cate Whittle writes for children and young adults. Her first book for young readers, Trouble at Home, about a girl and her troublesome dragon, was published by Omnibus Scholastic in 2016. More stories about Trouble followed over the next couple of years: Trouble and the Missing Cat, then Trouble and the New Kid (which made the Notables list for the CBCA Book of the Year Awards in 2018), and, the final book in the short series, Trouble and the Exploding House.
Her book about an accidental witch, Wyrd, for slightly older readers, was released in August 2018, and Cate’s latest book, Emergency Rescue Angel, came out in February 2020, just in time for the age of covid.
Cate lives in a beautiful rural valley in New South Wales with her family and a whole host of wildlife that visits her backyard. Other than writing stories, she enjoys reading, going for walks in the rain, taking too many photographs, and pottering in the garden when she has time. Cate, who was a primary school teacher for close to thirty years, also loves to share her passion for stories with children and adults alike.
