Penny Harrison is a children's author, book reviewer, garden
writer and lifestyle journalist. A professional writer for more
than 20 years, she has contributed to a variety of leading

Penny grew up on a farm in central-western NSW and spent her days exploring the bush and planning treasure hunts with her four brothers and sisters. Nowadays, she lives in a rambling old garden in the Yarra Valley with her husband, two young children and an ever-growing menagerie of animals and plants.

Along with children's book work, her illustrations have featured in frankie magazine, Broadsheet press, Flow magazine and in the book Shout Out to the Girls. When done sharpening pencils, you'll find her reading in a sunny nook with her cat asleep on her lap, watching crime drama or taking neighbourhood walks.
