Belinda Murrell: Mysteries, Time Slip and Dangerous Quests

Session Info:

I love talking with children about being an author, my books and where I get my inspiration from. This is a fun, interactive session with stories about my writing as a child the family history of writing, and how I became a children’s author. I discuss writing The Sun Sword Trilogy, a fantasy adventure series for boys and girls, for my own three children. My award winning time slip series including The Ivory Rose, The Forgotten Pearl and The Sequin Star, brings Australian history to life. More recently, my illustrated Lulu Bell series for younger readers was inspired by my own childhood living in a vet hospital. Fun stories, photographs and lively Q&A encourage kids to get excited about books and reading.
