Hi there. My name is Rachel Barnett, and I am an author, illustrator and teacher living in northern Australia. Reading is one of my favourite pastimes and I’m passionate about promoting and supporting children’s literacy and learning. My stories are mostly for children, but, occasionally, I dabble in writing short stories for adults too.

I have spent many years living in some of the most remote parts of the Northern Territory and aim to bring this experience into my writing and drawing.
