Meg lives near the ocean in Western Australia and her publications range from picture books, chapter books and young adult novels through to poetry for adults.

Meg was a bookish kid, in love with words and excited by dictionaries.  She is a former academic at the University of Western Australia, where she taught Japanese, Literature, and Creative Writing!

Some of her picture books include ‘The Penguins Are Coming’ , ‘Duck’ and one of my all time favourites ‘Once Upon A Small Rhinoceros’ . You can find out  more about Meg’s wonderful work on her website.
