About this author

Em Bailey is an Australian living in Germany where, despite having been a vegetarian for many years, she now enjoys the occasional Wurst. Em used to be a new-media designer for a children’s television production house and is now a full-time author. Shift is her first YA novel, although she has written a number of books for children under the name Meredith Badger.

When she’s not writing, Em is generally getting lost, losing stuff, reading, hanging out with her friends and family, and listening to Radiolab podcasts. Like Olive, she doesn’t like leggings that look like jeans, but has no problem with tofu schnitzels.

This was one of those books which required I put everything else on hold so I could give it my undivided attention. I was immediately pulled into the lush, brighter than bright world that Wren inhabits in the opening chapters and literally could not ...more

“I am weird, and you know what? That's OK. So are most interesting people.”

Em Bailey, Shift
