Pamela Rushby was born in Australia more years ago than she cares to divulge. She has worked in advertising, as a pre-school teacher, and as a writer and producer of educational television, audio and multimedia. Pam has written children's books and television scripts; hundreds of radio and TV commercials; television documentaries; short stories; and freelance journalism. She has won several awards, including a Literature Board of the Australia Council grant to work on archaeological excavations in Egypt and Jordan; a Churchill Fellowship to study educational television production in Canada; and a bag of gold coins at a film festival in Iran. Pam currently freelances as a writer for children and young adults and has written over 150 books. The latest is a young adult novel "When the Hipchicks Went to War". (This novel has been listed as a Notable Book in the Children's Book Council of Australia's 2010 awards. It has also been awarded the Ethel Turner prize for young people's literature in the New South Wales Premier's Literary Awards 2010.)
