Sally Harris


SALLY HARRIS grew up in Mildura and wrote her first book when she was in Grade 4 – it was a joke book, full of some seriously corny jokes.

Since then she has barely stopped writing stories and while her taste in jokes may not have improved, she likes to think that her storytelling skills have.

After graduating with a degree in Children’s Literature, Sally has been busy writing and working as a primary teacher, in both Australia and the UK, where she has endless classes of children to test out her stories on.

She now lives in Melbourne and when she’s not writing, you can find her teaching, dancing, drinking chai lattes, reading children's books and scouring the paper for unlikely news articles to turn into exciting fiction.

Sally loves animals, including penguins, and if she can't have one of those as a pet, a dog would be the next best thing.

Diary of a Penguin-napper is her first book.
