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 long list for the CBCA Book of the Year Awards in 2018), and, the final book in the short series, Trouble and the Exploding House. Cate’s latest book, Wyrd, for slightly older readers, was released in August 2018.


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 loves to read, go for walks in the rain, take photographs, and potter in the garden when she has time. Cate is also a teacher, and loves to share her passion for stories with children and adults alike.
