Catherine Carvell was born in England and as a child she loved reading, writing, earthworms and frogs. Her family migrated to Australia when she was eight and she was raised in the northern suburbs of Perth. “Darcy Moon and the Deep-fried Frogs” is Catherine’s first children’s book. Catherine currently lives in Singapore with her husband, two children and pet turtles. Sometimes, she talk to the turtles, but thankfully, they don’t talk back.
