Catriona McKeown


Catriona spends her days hanging out with teenagers in a middle

 school in Southern Queensland, where she works to support and advocate for young people with special needs.

Her love of writing character-driven stories reflects her passion to see all young people reach their full God-given potential, and to see the world they live in become a better place.

Catriona has published online a number of short stories, and her first YA novel, The Boy in the Hoodie, won the CALEB award for unpublished fiction in 2016. Her second young adult novel, Memphis Grace, was published in 2019.
