Catherine Magree

Catherine Magree lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she works as a freelance editor and web copywriter. Having tried her hand at articles, poetry, short stories, blogging, reviews, reports, theses and copywriting, she has finally written a book! Catherine did the hard yards for three years as a rural and suburban journalist. She has worked in publicity, writing and editing positions in community organisations. She has a Masters degree in literature from the University of Melbourne and a Diploma of Professional Writing and Editing from RMIT. When Catherine ?graduated' from a 12-step program in 2003 she no longer had her addiction - but she was clueless when it came to shopping. Over a five-year period she combined the lessons learned in the program with the use of intuition and the ancient Buddhist practice of mindfulness to become a highly skilled ?precision' shopper. The result was Inspired Shopping. A dedicated bargain hunter and cut-price fashionista, Catherine combines an interest in personal growth with a love of literature and a concern for social justice issues. She lives near ?Chaddy' (Chadstone Shopping Centre), reputed to be the largest shopping mall in the Southern Hemisphere, and has a love-hate relationship with it. Catherine's hobbies include yoga, reading and puppy wrangling. Her arts writing can be viewed at her blog, MelbArts. She is currently working on her memoir, tentatively titled School Teacher's Daughter.

Customer Service Changeover: Please read  

Fotolia 142626 small typinghands

Over the course of this week, March 8th, 2020-->March 14th, 2020 (we hope!), we are migrating and switching over to an entirely new customer service system.

Now, we expect that this new system will enable us--when we're accustomed to it--to answer your emails more quickly and efficiently.  

Like everything, though, it's new to us and we're going to need some time to get used to it.  We've been working on the migration for the past year, over 170,000 emails (yes, really!) to now, and we're changing over our chat and contact forms, too. Please--try to be patient with us, if you don't hear from us immediately. Our same-day response promise is still in place, but our reply times may lag, a bit, over the next few days, thanks.
