Catherine McMullen is one of the hottest young genre screenwriters in Australia at the moment.

 

In 2017 she won the John Hinde Award for Excellence in Science-Fiction writing for a pilot called 'Awake' and her feature script 'The Other Lamb' got her onto The Black List, The Hit List and The Blood List in Hollywood.

 

She is now commuting between Australia and LA, working in writers rooms and forging what will surely be an illustrious career.

 

We discuss her career trajectory to this point, how she writes and why you can't talk yourself down in Hollywood.
