I am a children's writer and presenter living in Melbourne, Australia. My published books are fiction and non-fiction; picture books (K-3), information books (Y5-7), articles and verse; for Education and Trade markets. A former zoologist and zookeeper, and current Outdoor Educator at an urban farm, I most love writing about animals and nature. I volunteer as a book reviewer for the Children's Book Council of Australia's Reading Time web site, and have experience in interactive presentations for school and library groups.
