About this author

Thalia grew up on a farm on the outskirts of Melbourne. It had a bush area down the back that was perfect for escaping and exploring. After a stint as a dancer she edited websites and travel guides, but her biggest passion has always been writing.
She cut her teeth as a series author: Go Girl, Girlfriend Fiction, and the nonfiction series It’s True. Her books have been translated into a variety of languages and sold into countries around the world.
Her first venture beyond series writing is a collection of unconventional short stories called Head Spinners: six stories to twist your brain. One story in the collection, ‘It Began with a Tingle’, is a finalist in the Children’s Fiction (told primarily though words) 2011 Aurealis Awards.
