Author Bio

Kat lives on the beautiful Mid-North Coast of New South Wales with her husband and their two children. 
Kat believes in storytelling as a pure form of art, through which children are exposed to a variety of subjects. Her passion for stories as tools to bring subjects like environmental awareness across to young children originates from a long career as a preschool teacher.
Kat’s favourite way to spend her free time if she is not reading or creating stories is to get inspired and energised by Australia’s beautiful nature, during a beach walk, a hike through the rainforest or overseeing the scenery of rolling hills and mountain ranges.

Fletch the koala and his friends from the Eucalypt Forest

are putting together a 'wood watch team’ to discover how blazes in the bush begin. 
Together they try to find a solution, but the fire is already raging and the flames are spreading fast. 
A story about working together, friendship and loss… with a magical touch that sparks hope.

A Blaze in the Bush was inspired by the major bushfires in New South Wales in 2019.

*Age recommended 3 to 8 years old


"Deeply moving and profound... Telling a story we all know so well living amongst the Australian landscape, this book ultimately left me feeling inspired for all that hope can bring.”
Sam… Indie Book Reviewer



Raf is a Belgian all-round illustrator and character designer with a passion for fantasy who lives with his wife and their three teenagers in the Flanders region of Belgium.
After doing Art School in St-Lucas Antwerp, Belgium he finished a classic 2D animation training and worked shortly as a concept artist for the games industry, but is currently working full time in a different field.
Nevertheless, Raf never lost his love for drawing and creating all kinds of illustrations.
In his free time, he spends time with the family, travelling to Austria and doing a lot of drawing and designing.
His connection with Australia is through his cousin author Kat Lux, who lives in the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales. Kat wrote her first book (A Blaze in the Bush) and was always thinking of making this a family project.
