Author Biography

Leanne Hall was born in Melbourne and has lived there most of her life. She began her writing career with short stories, which have been published in Sleepers Almanac, Meanjin and Best Australian Stories. She has resolutely resisted a sensible career trajectory, and has worked in the arts and educational publishing, in between long rambling jaunts overseas. Leanne currently works part-time as a children's specialist in an independent bookstore, a job that fuels her passion for books and allows her time to write. She won The Text Prize for Young Adult and Children's Writing in 2009 with her novel This Is Shyness.
