Amelia grew up in Melbourne and spent her early adult life in four different countries and four States of Australia. She has finally come to a stop in Canberra, where she spends her days writing kids' books, staring out the window thinking about kids' books, and occasionally just plain staring out the window.
When she's not writing, thinking or staring, Amelia likes helping people and playing with slime; an unusual combination that made her old job doing ultrasounds perfect for her. But because she loves picture books so much, she now writes full-time and just plays with dish soap once or twice a week. She also enjoys yoga and snorkelling but not at the same time because that's really hard.
Amelia's favourite vegetable is potato and she has a penchant for it in all cooked forms. She also has three kids, two hermit crabs and a husband.
