About Stella


This is where you can find out more about me – my books, awards, workshops, and my thoughts and feelings 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. Storytelling allows me to connect with readers on a much deeper level. I’ve been lucky enough to win awards for my kids’ stories. Best of all, my first junior novel has been accepted by a publisher, and is being launched this year!

This website is also home to my blog, where I share my passion for reading and writing and all things story-related. Browse through my past posts via the blog categories links (see the sidebar). I post once a week, on Tuesdays. Feel free to comment on anything I say, I’d love to hear from you!
