Wai Chim

Freedom Swimmer
Wai Chim graduated from Duke University with majors in Economics and English. She has lived in Australia for ten years.

This incredible tale about two boys' swim from mainland China to Hong Kong in search of freedom from poverty and oppression is inspired by a true story.

Tania Ingram

Jinny & Cooper
Warning! These stories contain magic, witches, talking animals (well, at least one), potato charms, salt circles, bad acting, and a huge amount of fun!
For Jinny, it's not easy owning Cooper, her annoying talking, disappearing guinea pig with a love of biscuits and a talent for sniffing out trouble.

John Pickrell

Weird Dinosaurs
We're in a golden age of discovery - and the fossils coming to light show dinosaurs were stranger, bigger, scarier and more diverse than we ever imagined. Why did dinosaurs grow so huge? Did they all have feathers? And what do sauropods have in common with 1950s vacuum cleaners?

Graeme Innes

Finding A Way
"I learned from my family that most things could be achieved - the challenge was finding a way."
Blind from birth, Graeme Innes was blessed. Because he had a family who refused to view his blindness as a handicap and who instilled in him a belief in his own abilities. Because he had the determination to persevere when obstacles were put in his way.
