Hi!  Rachel Barnett here! I am an Australian author, illustrator and teacher. I write mostly children’s stories, but also dabble a little in short stories for adults. Reading is one of my favourite pastimes, and I’m passionate about children’s literacy. I created this website to share my writing, drawing and experience of life on Groote Eylandt, a tiny island in the north of Australia.

Holus Bolus Books

This is also the home of Holus Bolus Books, which was formed to facilitate the publishing of my children’s picture book, There’s a Crocodile on the Golf Course among other projects.

Take a look around to learn more and to check out my books and illustrations.
