What Kate Did Next

West Australian, Jan 13, 2010: “Heidke’s witty sophomore effort proves she’s got the depiction of the domestic battleground down to a fine art.”

Herald Sun, Feb 6, 2010: “The reader is swept along with Kate’s adventures…verdict? Witty.”

Meet Kate Cavendish – housewife and mother of two – as she dips her toes back into the workforce while trying to juggle kids, a work-obsessed husband, lust for her son’s soccer coach, and much, much more …

Her husband’s a workaholic, her kids are growing up – now it’s time for Kate to follow some of her own dreams …

This is the often comical but also wry account of the life of mother of two, Kate Cavendish. It seems like only yesterday that Kate was one of the most well-regarded photographers in town. So how, she wonders, did her life come to consist of so much drudgery, not to mention dealing with a recalcitrant, eye-rolling teenage daughter and an often-absentee husband. And why oh why did her young son have to score such a distractingly gorgeous soccer coach?

We follow Kate’s journey as she dips her toes back into the workforce and starts to fantasise about getting her life back, including some of the glamour and fun.
