ABOUT KATIE LITTLE
Katie is a writer, comedian and stage mother. Her first book, ‘Catch A Falling Star – A Story About Growing Up with Jeanne Little’ has been an instant success, a quirky, laugh-out-loud memoir reliving her 80s childhood behind the scenes of TV, which also shares openly the impact on her family of loosing her iconic mother to Alzheimer’s.
Katie’s writing style has been compared to memoirist heavyweight Clive James, and acclaimed philosopher Daniel Pinchbeck once commended her blog as ‘similar to my own thinking’.
She writes about the precarious mental balancing act of living in the Anthropocene and promises after reading her stuff, ‘you’ll start to feel better about life, either that or you won’t feel quite so alone’. She uses black humour to cut through people’s preconceived ideas and loves challenging accepted norms of behaviour.
Katie lives in Sydney with her three children – Tom Poulton, La La and Hunter and is grateful they are nearly all old enough to understand sarcasm. Occasionally she also lives with her husband, landscape photographer Timothy Poulton, but they keep their laundry separate.
Like her mother Australian icon Jeanne Little who inherited the family ‘gift’ for tea leaf reading, Katie is obsessed with numerology which she has nicknamed ‘human sudoku’, and moonlights as a tarot reader in her spare time.

ABOUT ‘CATCH A FALLING STAR’
In 1974 Jeanne Little burst into the living rooms of millions of households across Australia with her ﬁrst appearance on The Mike Walsh Show – audiences didn’t know what hit them! With incredible outfits, false eyelashes and a raucous voice that screamed ‘Hello Daaaaaaahling!’, Jeanne was an instant sensation and won the Gold Logie for Most Popular TV Personality two years later.
Go back to 1980’s Australia, to the days of Betamax, Bob Hawke and shoulder pads, before smart phones and breathalysers, when Big Macs came in styrofoam boxes and the only environmental crisis was a hole in the ozone layer. Flash forward to 2010 and Jeanne’s name hits the headlines again – this time with the shocking revelation that she has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, a disease affecting an estimated almost 50 million people worldwide. With her mother in fast decline and her family in crisis, it is up to Katie to take the reigns.
‘CATCH A FALLING STAR’ will take you on a journey that is both laugh-out-loud funny, heartbreakingly honest, and a rare glimpse into the personal life of one of Australia’s most beloved celebrity families.
