ABOUT SALLY MURPHY
Books books books – oh and kids.
Books and kids. That’s what I am all about. I love children, with six of my own, and I love reading and writing children’s books.
I live in rural Australia where I read a lot, and write a lot. My publications include verse novels, picture books, chapter books, fiction and nonfiction reading books, educational resources and poetry, as well as thousands of reviews, chiefly at review site Aussiereviews.com which I own and run.
I’ve also recently completed doctoral studies in creative writing, focusing on the theme of belonging in children’s poetry, and where children’s poetry belongs.
