I was born in Castlemaine, a beautiful town in the goldfields region of Victoria, Australia and have lived in the area all my life.

When I was 15 I left school but I was 45 before I accidentally became a writer.

There was no television in our house when I was growing up and I read a lot.

I think I learnt how to write by reading books other people wrote.

Now I write picture books as well as novels for younger readers and teenagers.

Some of my books have won awards and been published in many countries.

I feel very lucky to have discovered something I’m good at.
