Caroline Caddy Writer
Caroline Mavis Caddy (born 20 January 1944) is an Australian poet. Born in Western Australia of an Australian mother and an American father, Caroline Mavis Caddy spent part of her childhood in the United States of America and Japan. She returned to Western Australia where she finished high school, and later worked as a dental nurse with the Road Dental Unit. According to Queensland poet Jaya Savige "Caddy writes with equal verve about the rural southwest of WA and her time abroad, particularly in China (though also Canada and Antarctica). ...Her relaxed, often conversational tone belies her sharp eye for detail which, combined with a knack for simile and metaphor, has remained acute throughout her career.
