Janelle works full-time in the corporate sector and is a Mum to two young children. She lives in Sydney, Australia. As a working mum, she knows how special the time spent reading stories to a child can be. The way their faces light up when they hear the words and see the illustrations is magical. She discovered her passion for writing children's picture books when her children started demanding more and more of her fantastical bedtime stories. Janelle wanted to share with other kids the joy and excitement her children experienced listening to her creations. She hopes your family enjoys her books as much as she has enjoyed writing them. Janelle has self-published five books in the Secret School Spy Squad series, with further books in production. She is also exploring other children's picture book topics and ideas which she hopes to get to market later this year. Janelle is a member of the Children's Book Council of Australia and the NSW Writer's Centre.
