Katrina Roe is a children's author and radio presenter. Most recently she was host of the morning show on Sydney’s Hope 103.2, before going on maternity leave to have her third baby.
Her third children’s book, Same, is a true story about her brother, Charlie, who has cerebral palsy. She is also the author of Marty’s Nut-Free Party which was shortlisted for the Speech Pathology Book of the Year Awards and Emily Eases her Wheezes, a Notable Book in the 2015 CBCA Book of the Year Awards and a recommended book in the 2015 Family Therapists Awards for Children's Literature.
Katrina lives in Sydney with her husband, Chris, a news producer with NITV, and her three gorgeous girls.
My Mum had told me that Charlie had almost died when he was born, which meant he was lucky to be alive, rather than unlucky to be disabled. Because of this mindset, I always felt my brother was viewed as a gift, rather than a burden.
