Cate Kendall is actually writing team Lisa Blundell and Michelle Hamer, who first met as private-school mums over a latte in mid-2005. As they sipped coffee and poked fun at the posh mums of the private school world it dawned on them that this topic could make a great book. The two mums each have four children.
As a prolific journalist, Michelle has been widely published across Australia, has been an editor at The Age, and is author of the books: It Couldn’t Happen to Me, How it Feels, and Caesarean Culture.
The advertising game was Lisa’s entrée into writing with several years copywriting under her belt – she also writes for The Age.
