An exciting new illustrated middle grade mystery series for children aged 8-12
With a background in paediatric nursing, Julie Anne Grasso spent many years literally wrapping children in cotton wool. Every day she witnessed great courage and resilience from the tiny people she cared for, which inspired her to write stories about a little girl elf just like them.
She has a degree in Nursing from Queensland University of Technology and has been published in her nerdy nursing specialty in medical journals, but her true love is writing about elf worlds that usually involve cupcakes. The new love of her life is Frankie Dupont, an illustrated middle grade series.
