Caroline is a British-born Australian-based author, with 20 years experience as a writer and producer in film and television. She has worked on a documentary about Princess Diana lookalikes, a series about journeys to the ends of the earth, as well as a feature film about finding the end of the rainbow. While she has done none of these things herself, she has discovered that she loves to write and to share lesser-known histories; and in particular those of pioneering women whose lives she reimagines through fiction. Caroline studied the craft of novel writing at the Faber Academy in 2012 and has a MA in Film & Television and a MA in Creative Writing.

I feel we’re very lucky that there are so many librarians and researchers who work hard to preserve and share our treasured histories at the many libraries, museums and galleries, and I know that I wouldn’t be able to write historical fiction if it wasn’t for them.
