I started my illustration career with Cathie Tasker while she was at the helm of the children’s section of HarperCollins in 1992. Cathie was a superb person to make my entry into this children’s literature world with. Cathie was gracious, kind, instructive and assisted and praised me where needed. I appreciate to this day her professionalism, dedication and belief which was applied to each project. Cathie is a gem in the landscape of publishing in Australia.

Cathie brings her experience as a highly successful children’s book publisher and editor of a major publishing house to manuscripts. She is an outstanding assessor with the ability to provide constructive insight into creative work.

I’ve worked with Cathie on a number of children’s books of wildly different types. In addition, she’s been a manuscript assessor for me for adult novels. I rely on her editorial nous, her professionalism and her honesty. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
