Hello and Welcome!

Lisa Shanahan is a writer of picture books and fiction for young people. She loves moon-gazing, making up words, mock orange blossom, black cockatoos, hot cups of tea and shouts of unexpected laughter. When she is not writing, she can be found reading, tucked up on the lounge, with the weight of a scruffy dog resting on her knee. She feels incredibly grateful for the glorious magic of books. For all the ways stories, starting tiny as seeds, grow and unfold so high and wide, she can perch in their branches, finding shelter and shade.
