ABOUT KERRY MALONE

  • Kerry Malone is a Canberra-based children’s author. Her picture book You can do it Joey! was released in 2015 and her new chapter book, Sophie Makes New Friends is now available.

    Kerry has been involved in various literary events including the Goulburn Reader Writer Festival. She has spoken at ACT Branch events of the Children’s Book Council of Australia and Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. 

    Sophie’s stories were inspired by some of Kerry’s experiences. She first started wearing glasses when she was five years old and her glasses weren’t as cool as Sophie’s. Without her glasses Kerry couldn’t see much and spent a lot of time lost at the beach. 

     

    Kerry writes her books in libraries and cafes. Her favourite cafes are the ones which sell doughnuts.


    Kerry is happy to visit schools, libraries and community organisations to share her story and the inspiration behind her books and her indie publishing adventure.
