About Catherine Khoo
Driven by her life-long goal to ‘nurture the next generation of thinkers and writers’, Ms Catherine Khoo juggles both her education and publishing arms to help children aged eight to sixteen express themselves freely through creative writing. Through helping them to write stories ranging beyond 3,000 words and then publishing them, Catherine aims to groom children to become more than just readers and writers– to be bold and inspired thinkers.
Catherine has written and edited more than 10 books of different genres, and served as editor-in-chief of two international magazines before she founded the Young Author Scheme in 2003. She devoted the next ten years mentoring 8 to 18-year-olds to write their own books. It was only in late 2012 that she decided that she had to go back to her first love: writing. And the inimitable lady decided to write not one, but two books of contrasting genres: Justice Bao and the Case of the Missing Coins (which was recently nominated for the local Popular Reader’s Choice Award) for children, and her personal memoir aiming to inspire women to live their lives freely with no regrets, aptly titled Love! Live Dangerously!
And Have Fun!
However, both titles share a common goal: To inspire and educate readers, and encourage them to love reading and writing. “Everyone has a story to tell,” she points out the hidden tale in everyone. “I wanted to use the story of
Justice Bao to get children to love reading, teach them values and act as a resource.” More on Catherine Khoo here
