Heidi is passionate about sharing her love of story, art and creativity with children and young people.
I was born and grew up in Tamworth – a regional town in NSW best known for country music and a large golden guitar.
When I was at university I had many different jobs – I worked in a café, bookshop, art store and computer shop. The funniest job I had was being a photographer for theatre restaurants! After I graduated I worked as a graphic designer which took me in many different directions – one of them being children’s books!
Funny goofy-looking characters feature highly in my books. I also love silly words like ‘Blurrrrrk!’ ‘Meep! Meep!’ and ‘Screepy Screep Screep’ – mostly because they are fun words to say!
Friendship, courage and humour are also reoccurring themes in my stories.
There’s been so many wonderful highlights in my career so far – but seeing a drawing of a character from one of my books is the absolute BEST thing ever.
Australia, North America, UK, Korea, Japan, China, France & Germany.
I’m passionate about making lough out loud books that are engaging and inspiring so that children want to read them again and again.
My favourite word is KERFUFFLE! + I do not like balloons (also known as globophobia).
