Catherine T Wilson came to Australia as a ten-pound baby on a ‘ten-pound Pom’ passport. She grew up in Elizabeth, South Australia until family tragedy saw them relocate to Queensland in the early seventies. With academic dreams in shatters, at fifteen, Catherine was installed into the workforce. Marriage and children eventually followed, then in 2003 an accidental online meeting with a woman who shared the same name led them both in a new direction. Together, they co-wrote a medieval series and all four books in ‘Lions and Lilies’ have won first place prizes in the Chatelaine/Chaucer Awards in the US. In 2018 The Traitor’s Noose won the Grand Prize Chaucer Award.
