is a current Master of Arts (Writing and Literature) student at Deakin University, and a primary school music teacher. Katie lives with her family in Cairns, North Queensland, in a hill-side house surrounded by rainforest. During the Covid-19 pause in their usual activities, Katie and her family walked in the rainforest, absorbing its sights, sounds, smells and touches as, unperturbed, the forest continued its being-in-the-world.
