Cat is an excellent teacher, letting me watch and learn before having a go myself. Under her experienced guidance I felt more self-assured than I thought possible. It’s a privilege to have support from someone with such a breadth of professional expertise. Jess Stockham, author of The Big Red Rock

  • How to present your work as an author, whether you write adult novels or picture books for little ones.
