Melinda Tognini has always been a scribbler of stories, and cannot imagine a life without words. But she has also worked as a pharmacy assistant, youth worker, chaplain and teacher. She completed a Master of Arts in writing and her feature articles, travel writing and personal essays have appeared in magazines and anthologies in Australia and the US.

Money School by Lacey Filipich
"Having drummed into my daughters since childhood the old adage that 'a man is not a financial plan' I was thrilled to be able to give them each a copy of Money School! What I love about this book is that it doesn't just explain the what, why and how " Read more of this review »
