About the Editor

Caitlin O’Toole, the curator and editor of The Human Writers, is a seasoned writer, blogger, editor and producer. She is the author of the critically-acclaimed blog The Miss Jobless Chronicles, a biting and candid account of her life as a freelance writer in the unforgiving city of New York.

Caitlin has written for television, magazines, and websites in her 30+ year career. Her writing has appeared in publications around the world, from London to Sydney and beyond. Caitlin has also taught extensively, from teaching digital literacy to older adults to teaching blogging workshops at Senior Planet, a groundbreaking New York City non-profit for adults over 60.

In 2019, Caitlin and her chihuahua Rosie moved from New York City to Australia to begin life anew. Her remarkable journey, chronicled in The New York Times bestseller Tiny Love Stories, reveals how love can — and did — quite literally, save the day.

Caitlin’s father John O’Toole was a pioneer in the field of ageing. After an impressive career, he reinvented himself in his late seventies and started writing an online politics column for The Huffington Post. He also started his own blog, Eli’s Observations, a brilliant, witty and often dark spin on current events.

The Human Writers was created in honour of him, with love.
