"My fiction is mostly fantasy, with a little SF; for years, my only published work was short fantasy fiction, in small-press publications, as well as a few articles and book reviews. I only discovered I was a children’s writer when I won the Mary Grant Bruce Short Story Award, sharing it with Robin Klein, who was one of Australia’s top children’s writers at the time. That encouraged me to keep going in that genre, which I had always loved reading".
"I learn something new from each bout of research. Monsters and Creatures of the Night, my first book, was the only one for which I already had extensive background knowledge, and even that needed research. To write Potions to Pulsars, I had to bone up on my biology, astronomy, physics, and chemistry, so I could explain what my heroines had achieved".
