I am a primary school teacher with a passion to write children’s books. The last two years I have been teaching year one in Queensland and have been surrounded by books for young children. I am also currently studying my Masters in Education (major in teacher-librarianship), which has given me the opportunity to study children’s literature.
As a member, I have also attended writing courses with the Queensland Writing Centre which has given me a great insight to the world of creating writing. I have now written quite a few manuscripts and am starting on the journey to having them published.
I am very excited to announce that my first children’s book, “My Dad is a Bear” will be released on August 1st 2014, in time for Father’s Day. Come along to the book launch on 10th August at the Eltham Library. Details below!
