About the author (2010)

Born in Western Australia in 1984, Briony Stewart grew up in the inner city suburbs of Perth, peeping over alleyway fences in search of great mysteries and honing her excellent tree climbing abilities. Despite dabbling in entomology, crime solving and a desire to own a deli, Briony showed a talent for both art and writing during her school years. At fifteen she decided she would not be happy unless she could become both an author and an artist. After receiving a scholarship from the Art Gallery of Western Australia Briony went on to study a double degree in fine art and creative writing at Curtin University. Shortly after graduating, she published her first book, Kumiko and the Dragon, which won the Aurealis award for children's short fiction, and was a CBCA notable book of 2008. Briony currently lives in Perth with her husband Harry and their beloved pet rabbit Winston, writing and illustrating for children.
