Darly Jones lives in the beautiful Adelaide Hills with her husband, Mark,
and faithful dog, Teddy. She has one daughter, Larissa, with whom she
enjoys a great relationship.
Darly loves teaching Art, Literacy and Drama and has written and directed
many plays for her students to perform. Having taught primary school
children for many years, she wanted to write a novel that would engage all of her students, so included all of the literary magnets kids sit
still for: twists, cliffhangers, sibling rivalry, bullying, revenge,
hidden secrets, and mystery.
Darly enjoys painting, directing, singing, cooking, scuba diving,
photography, spending time with friends, or just curling up on the lounge
with an exciting book.
