From Katherine...

 "I have strong childhood memories of feeling very small in a big world. I also remember what it was like having all these big things inside of me - thoughts and ideas and feelings - which I was still learning how to express. This is where Squish Rabbit came from."

"For many years I worked as a paediatric Occupational Therapist, specialising as a children's counsellor. I got to work with some of the most amazing young people and was constantly inspired by their stories. Squish Rabbit is definitely influenced by this time, as his books tackle many common childhood themes, such as friendship, self confidence, fears and finding your voice."
