Zana Fraillon was born in Melbourne, but spent her early childhood in San Francisco.

Zana has written two picture books for young children, a series for middle readers, and a novel for older readers based on research and accounts of survivors of the Forgotten Generation. She spent a year in China teaching English and now lives in Melbourne with her three sons, husband and two dogs.

When Zana isn't reading or writing, she likes to explore the museums and hidden passageways scattered across Melbourne. They provide the same excitement as that moment before opening a new book - preparing to step into the unknown where a whole world of possibilities awaits.

“To those who refuse to be blinded by the glare, or deafened by the hush, who are brave enough to question, and curious enough to explore. To those who will not forget. You will make a difference. And to the rest of us, so that we may learn how.”
Zana Fraillon, The Bone Sparrow

“Wouldn't you know it. I bring a man to life and forget all about including a brain that will make sense of any damn thing.”
Zana Fraillon, The Ones That Disappeared

“He used to tell me that there's not time in this life to be scared. He said to breathe your fear right in and turn it wild and then you'll never be scared of nothing.”
