• I’m a children’s writer and poet based in Fremantle, Western Australia. I’ve published eighteen books for young people ranging from picture books to Young Adult novels, as well as poetry for adults. My novel A Single Stone won the Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Young Adult Fiction, the Children’s category of the Queensland Literary Awards, the Aurealis Awards for speculative fiction, and was an Honour Book in the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards. My work has twice won the Crystal Kite Award for the Australia/New Zealand region: picture book Ten Tiny Things (illust. Kyle Hughes-Odgers; 2012) and middle-grade novel Catch a Falling Star (2019)


  • I like art. And I enjoy making statements. Except for this one.
