Catherine Cole (born 9 December 1950) is an Australian author and academic. She lives between Australia, South West France and the UK[1] Cole's work in the fields of fiction, poetry, non-fiction and academic writing has been widely published both in Australia in the UK, US, China and Vietnam.[2] Her writing has won, been shortlisted or commended in a range of awards including The Munster Poetry Prize; The Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize; Davitt Award for Australian Crime Writing; The Ned Kelly Award; The Peter Blazey Prize for Non-Fiction Manuscript; and The Asher Award Melbourne University 2005 award. Cole also has judged some of Australia's leading writing prizes including the Age Book of the Year; The Barbara Jefferis Award; and The National Jazz Writing Competition.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]

As a professor of creative writing at both the University of Wollongong and RMIT University, Melbourne and as a senior lecturer at University of Technology, Sydney, Cole has supervised some of Australia's leading and emerging writers in their postgraduate degrees.[11]

Literary career[edit]

Cole began her literary career publishing poetry in a range of Australian poetry journals with the support of her mentor, A.D. Hope- whom she later wrote about in her memoir, The Poet Who Forgot (2008).[12] Her first published prose fiction was short story, followed by the novels Dry Dock (1999), Skin Deep (2005) and then The Grave at Thu Le (2006) which examines French colonialism in Vietnam.[13][14][15]

Cole's Private Dicks and Feisty Chicks explores the lure of crime fiction and its increasing popularity across international cultures and was published in 1996.[16]

Her lifelong fascination with Vietnam was further explored in the anthology, The Perfume River– Writing from Vietnam (2010).[17]

Cole, along with Vicki Karaminas and Peter McNeil co-edited Fashion in Fiction, Fashion in Textiles, Television and Film (2009).[18]

Some of Cole's recent short stories have been published in leading Australian journals and anthologies (see list of works below); and have been produced by and read on BBC Radio 4.[19]
