Nette Hilton

Children's and Young Adult author Nette Hilton was born in Victoria but spent her high school years in Sydney, and then, her schooling completed, she gradually moved further out into country areas, where she enjoyed the solitude of living on acres and being surrounded with animals.

Nette tried a number of jobs, but never really settled in something that felt absolutely 'right' until she eventually took herself off to Teacher's College. There she began the rest of her life as a teacher.

Nette has been writing for publication for over twenty years. Her first published book - The Long Red Scarf (Omnibus Books, 1987) - won an Honour Book award in the 1988 Children's Book Of The Year awards.

Nette is passionate about reading and writing, and is constantly writing and has had over 30 books published from picture books to novels for both children and adult readers.
