Hello! I’m Catherine Johnson, a British Ex-pat who moved from an awesome place called Yorkshire 😉 to New Zealand for four years before crossing the pond once again to live in Canada where I am staying (no more moves please – though I do miss NZ and get big pangs for all things English like wellington boots, rainy days, old cottages, sociable train journeys, Countdown, the royals, yorkshire puddings. Okay I’ll stop now *breathesintopaperbag*). I have managed to embrace ice hockey and -20 long winters. The canada geese are beautiful. Go Canada!
I graduated in business on one of those vacation (oops I mean vocation courses) HND Business and Finance and I’m still not business savvy, oh well. I au paired in France and speak un petit peu de francais. I used to be a bit good at Tae Kwon-Do as black belt British Champion. Now I’m so lazy I can just about manage a dog walk, another oh well.
I’m happy to have the opportunity to write and draw at home in these exciting (scary) times of self-publishing. I am the author /illustrator of two poetry books for children, Weirdo Zoo and The Everglades. I seem to have a theme of odd and weird running through, though I did try to write a couple of serene poems in The Everglades. It was loads of fun dreaming up odd combinations of animals to make one weird animal, like Frogoloctopus.
I published both books with CreateSpace and am currently working on a few other stories, including a Zombie poetry book.
Weirdo Zoo(about some weird animals at the zoo)
The Everglades(which has some serene moments and some snorty ones)
