About the Author

Deanne Temple was born in Brisbane, Queensland in 1973 and spent her childhood living in the Northern Territory, Victoria and New South Wales before finally settling back in Queensland on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. When her senior high school art teacher asked Deanne if she would like to go to Art College after high school Deanne scoffed at the idea, unable to see any value or skill in the work she was producing. She went on to join the workforce but continued to create for her own enjoyment and education. Twenty years and a Bachelor in Arts later, she still spend what she calls her 'sane' time creating everything from interesting messes to wonderful coloured creations that tell their own stories. Deanne's collection of drawings, doodlings and subject studies have resolved themselves into a series of characters just asking to be introduced to the world. She has drawn a series of colourful and simplistic characters then brought them to life in short children's stories with gentle morals, designed to help engage a young reader's mind and imagination. Deanne knows that a serious children's book author and illustrator should have a bio that tells of about her living happily with a husband, a couple of kids and a menagerie of animals, but for the present she is too busy to pursue this end path. For now, her bio only tells us that Deanne continues to follow her creative path wherever it leads her.
