Hello

I’m Penny. I’ve been writing stories and poems since I was very young. I now write children’s picture books, children’s book reviews, and lifestyle articles for newspapers and magazines.
My first picture book, Dance with Me, is a warm and whimsical story about treasured possessions. My second book, The Art Garden, is due for release in February 2018 and a third, Emily Green’s Garden, will be released later in 2018.
I live on the outskirts of Melbourne, by the Yarra River, with my husband and two young children, along with an ever-growing menagerie of dogs, cats, chickens and bunnies. When I’m not reading or writing, you’ll find me pulling weeds in the garden and attempting to meditate.
