Christine Harris is the author of over 50 books for children, published in Australia and extensively overseas. She is well known and well loved by children around the world for her best-selling Spy Girl series but most recently through the growing success of the Audrey series published by Little Hare. Christine grew up in different parts of the South Australian Outback. When she lived in Yorke Peninsula, her house was 'the first fridge on the right, 15k after the last pub'. Christine loves the outback and is fascinated with the history of everyday Australians. Her books ring with authentic Australian voices: witty, dry and down-to-earth. Audrey is Australia's own Pippi Longstocking. Determined, mischievous, imaginative and inquisitive Audrey is the perfect character for readers who love gutsy-go-getting girls.
