About Stella


This is where you can find out more about me – my books, awards, workshops, and my thoughts about this wonderful writing life!

I entered the workforce armed with a law degree, but writing has always been my passion. It didn’t take me long to leave my sensible job and dive headfirst into the uncertain world of publishing – and I’ve loved every minute! I’ve had 30-something books published, and I still get a thrill when I see my name on a cover :)

I write for children and young adults. My non-fiction books were fascinating to research and write, but now my focus is on fiction … something I’ve long wanted to do. I’ve been lucky enough to win awards for my stories. Best of all, my first junior novel has been accepted by a publisher, and is being launched in August!

This website is also home to my blog. Browse past posts via the blog categories links. I post once a week, on Tuesdays. Feel free to comment, I’d love to hear from you!
