Author Biography - Lisa Shanahan
Lisa Shanahan is an award-winning writer of picture books and fiction for young people. She loves moon-gazing, making up words, mint slices, mock orange blossom, black cockatoos, shouts of unexpected laughter, the weight of a scruffy dog resting on her knee and hot cups of tea from a teapot. Her first novel for teenagers, My Big Birkett was published to critical acclaim both in Australia and in the United States. She lives close to the river of her childhood, with her husband and their three sons and one woolly dog.
