• I’m a children’s writer and poet based in Fremantle, Western Australia. I’ve published seventeen 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 middle-grade novel Surface Tension (published as Below in the US) won the 2012 Davitt Award for Crimewriting and my picture book Ten Tiny Things (illust. Kyle Hughes-Odgers) won the 2012 Crystal Kite Award for the Australia/New Zealand region.


  • I like art. And I enjoy making statements. Especially this one.
