Catherine Chambers

Catherine Chambers was born in Adelaide and was shaken but not stirred by an earthquake that hit the city four hours later.

She enjoys writing about history, cultures and religions, and reckons that sport can satisfy all three. She loves travelling, but never as much as the times when she and her family chugged across Europe in their old VW bus.
