Author, editor, filmmaker and publisher Catherine Khoo’s first love is for the written word. And for turning ideas into reality. She has been described by Tommy Koh, Singapore’s Ambassador-at-large, as a “great editor” and by Katsuhiko Eguchi, Chairman of Japan’s PHP Institute, founder of Asia 21 magazine, as “having an untrapped mind – the ability to visualize and make ideas concrete. Such a person can also perceive the whole picture and tackle many problems that come with putting together the pieces of the picture.” As the only female editor-in-chief from 1996 to 2002 in Japan’s Asia 21, Catherine’s role was to create a magazine that more than appeals to readers in terms of content. Under Catherine, the magazine offered analyses that considered the bigger issues behind the headlines, while cutting across to get a more regional feeling and addressing changing issues in education, development, and roles in the new millennium. In 2005, Catherine founded Experiences & Experiments to enable under-18s to realise their dream of turning their ideas into reality. Which is why the Young Author Club, the first imprint, is penned by 8 to 18 year olds, for 8 to 18 year olds. “I was amazed at the tremendous talent of the young. I founded my own publishing company because no one believed that Kids Can Write, and I wanted to prove that they could. It has been seven years in the making, but now seeing that the books are finally getting recognition, and more important, an audience, I am really so happy for my Young Authors!”
