Catharine has brought to the project professional expertise, and broad experience and skills as a writer and publisher. Her love of writing, attention to detail, incisive mind and passion for enquiry have seen her constantly “go the extra mile” in gathering details and seeking facts.

She has unrelentingly shared our desire for the book to be the best possible history of our great profession — and her commitment to the project, her patience, resilience, good humour, and genuine interest in our stories have been much valued by all who have encountered her over the last 12 months of the writing of the book."
