Mio Debnam is currently working as a writer/editor, having ‘retired’ from the world of journalism, where she worked as the Editor in Chief of two daily children’s newspapers for several years. Over the years, she has had stories and articles for both adults and children published, as well as a middle grade fantasy novel, four picture books and several educational readers. She's also the author of a new series of guidebooks for kids - kidsGo NYC/London/Hong Kong/Sydney/Bali and Phuket was published in June 2011 by Haven Books.
Mio started on her present career path early, editing and writing stories for school and university newspapers; getting her hands inky learning how to print the old fashioned way. After a decade working in the financial markets in London and Hong Kong, she returned to her first love and has been working with words ever since.
To get inspiration for her writing, and to keep up with ‘what’s hot’, Mio has become expert at eavesdropping on her children’s conversation, as well as those she encounters at school visits and creative writing workshops!
