Cathie Colless, a former teacher, lives in the Come-by-Chance district of north western NSW, where she works in the running of her family agricultural property and business.
A long yearning to write, resulted in Cathie co-authoring with her daughter, the early childhood educational book,Yum, Yum……Where Does It Come From?, which teaches children where our food comes from, and the importance of our farmers.
She has also written Diamonds in the Dust, a collection of stories featuring ‘ordinary’ Australian bush women, who are doing extraordinary things in their lives, and their communities.
