About

Hi.  I'm Katherine Collette.  My first novel Grassroots comes out with Text Publishing in 2018.  My second Swallow will be released in 2019. 

I was part of the ACT Writers Centre's Hardcopy Program in 2016 and in 2014 was awarded a Retreat Fellowship at Varuna the Writers House.   I am represented by Jacinta di Mase Management. 

Here are some other things I've written:

ABC Pocketdocs (Finalist) - How to assemble a flat pack shed. 

Mamamia - Conversations between mothers

Mamamia - Tale of a Bad Haircut

Onya Magazine (various)

In addition to writing, I'm an engineer.  I work for a water corporation in sewerage planning and design.  This is more interesting/less gross than it sounds. 

I live in the northern suburbs of Melbourne with my two kids and husband.
