Welcome

Why hello and welcome to my website – the hub of my writerly world! From here you can find all you need to know about my work as an author and children’s literacy advocate.

Please do venture over and connect with me on Instagram too – my favourite social media platform – where I share many of the things which inspire me and my writing; and have a lot of fun connecting with like-minded people and discovering amazing projects in all corners of the globe. My wanderlust for looking beyond my home base of Melbourne is probably due to the fact that since 6 weeks of age I’ve lived in a gazillion different places in Australia, as well as spending 11 years working in London – a true nomad!

My published books to date include both non-fiction (RPS, UK and US) and commercial fiction titles for adults (Bloomsbury, UK; Allen & Unwin, Aust). These books are my absolute treasures, and stemmed from my simple, life-long passion for those pretty things we wear on our feet each day; and by being literally knocked off my feet by the extraordinary experience of first-time motherhood. You’ve probably guessed by now, that my writing career has had no strategic plan, other to write about what I love!

I’m now delighted to be focusing all of my energy on writing for children – having spent the past ten years championing children’s literacy as a classroom story-writing facilitator, hospital literacy volunteer and Ambassador for the leading education support charity, Ardoch Youth Foundation. I have several picture book and upper-middle grade fiction works in progress, so please do watch this space for news of publications.

For more about my journey to publication and general background information, please visit my ‘About Me Q&A’ page. And while I don’t profess to being a prolific blogger, I’ll share articles on this website as well as keep you up-to-date with my various author activities over on my Facebook Page too.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or general bookish chat, via the comments box, or: author@emmabowd.com
