Cate Kendall is actually writing team Lisa Blundell and Michelle Hamer who first met as private school mums over a latte in mid-2005. As they sipped coffee and poked fun at the posh mums of the private school world it dawned on them that this topic could make a great book. The girls worked together extremely well from the first day. As the novel progressed the two created a system where Lisa would write the first 1000 words of a chapter, often using the notes created from their first brainstorming session. She would then email this 'scaffolding' to Michelle who would add another 1000 over the top of Lisa's; embellishing, polishing and when Lisa went too far - taking it just that little bit further!! As a prolific journalist, Michelle has been widely published across Australia, has been an editor at The Age, and is author of the books: "It Couldn't Happen to Me," How it Feels, and Caesarean Culture. The advertising game was Lisa's entr e into writing with several years copywriting under her belt - she also writes for The Age. The two mums each have four children. We've had at least one babe, and sometimes all eight, with us throughout this project," said Michelle, "but that's okay, we do our best work amidst chaos." Michelle and Lisa are now proud to now be publishing their third book together, Chanel Sweethearts, which is set to be another hilarious bestselling romp.
