Robyn has won a number of writing awards and been published in national journals, newspapers and magazines. In 2011, she was one of only eight participants chosen nationally to attend the prestigious Allen & Unwin/Qld Writers Centre mentorship in Brisbane.

About the illustrator: Yes, Me! Sadami Konchi is an enthusiastic children’s picture book illustrator, award winning portraitist and event/conference sketcher, based in Sydney. One of her greatest strengths is drawing/painting empathetic lively portraits. The BA from Sydney University in linguistics and sociology gives her deep text analyses and good research skills to illustrate a story. Sadami has been one of the highly commended artists in the Arts Access Australia Art prize, a Doug Moran semi-finalist (twice), in top 600 at a world watercolour competition.
